May 2020 News Update

Beavers have been keeping very busy, since our meetings were stopped due to Covid-19, helping out lots at home, doing lots of badge work, making cards for our local care home and enjoying Camp@Home. They have also just started to meet again via 'Zoom' !

Since we can't meet together at the moment, lots of Beavers, leaders and young leaders joined in with Camp@Home, where the whole group camped in their gardens on in an indoor den on Saturday 2nd May. It looked like everyone had a brilliant time!

It’s not very often you get to enjoy your garden at night and our Beavers certainly made the most of it.

Well done Beavers!

We loved making our necker throw challenge too!

Our Beavers have been earning badges whilst at home. Congratulations to Stanley, Maisy, Oscar, Sophie T and Sophie M all having achieved their Chief Scout Bronze Award, the highest award a Beaver can receive!

Alex has kept a diary to share some of the activities she's been up to in lockdown, from map reading, den-building, bird-box building to growing sunflowers!

It's been great to hear about Beavers who have also been helping out at home.

Beavers were also excited to join in the 'virtual' St Georges Day Celebrations to renew their promise too!

Helping at home : teaching little sister to read!

Growing sunflowers at home to see who could get the biggest flower!

Helping keep the park tidy!

They also had a very busy start to the year, learning all about the Arctic, cooking a stir fry and enjoying a session with a dance teacher who taught them all some moves ... we have some very talented Beavers!

January 2020 News Update

Beavers have been busy finding out about all sorts of things; from learning about the beginnings of life in Warwickshire at the museum to the beginnings of Beavers.

We had an amazing sleepover at Warwick Museum to celebrate 2nd Warwick's 60th Anniversary, sleeping in between all the exhibits...with a skeleton of Oisin the Deer watching over us a we slept. We felt very lucky to have this wonderful place all to ourselves.

We found out that although Beavers have been in the UK since 1986 there were the equivalent to Beavers in Canada in 1974...and this was possibly where we get our name from.

Looking ahead we are den building, cooking and having lots more fun and friends !!

Our special 60th birthday cake - only for Beavers!

We had a fun party in the Scout hut with a special visit from the High Sheriff of Warwickshire!

We made lots of yummy chocolates which we could take home.

November 2019 News Update

We are still winning the small change collection challenge for our new HQ - keep it up!

Beavers have been getting around a lot just lately . We started off by exploring space and stars and the Beavers learned about constellations by making them out of themselves!

Then we went for a muddy walk in the dark through Priory Park and Warwick town, all was worth while as we had chips waiting for us at the hut when we returned.

We have also joined in with 'The Postcards of Kindness group' that has been set up on Facebook. Last year a care home company decided that its elderly residents needed cheering up as many were lonely. They asked the local community to send the residents posts cards from any where. It worked so well that a few a the care givers decided to spread it out all over the country using the power of face book. The Beavers sent some great cards all over the country.

We are now looking forward to our Night at the Museum!

Can you guess what constellations is being made here?

Our postcards of kindness

It was great to see so many of our Beavers out helping sell poppies - well done!

We had a great turn out from Beavers and the rest of the group at Remembrance Parade!
