Beaver Scouts were started in 1982 and became a recognised section of the Scout movement in April 1986 for children aged between 6 and 8 years old.
They meet for an hour each week during school term.
It is a different environment to school where they can spend time with their friends playing games and learning new and fun things.
Our Beaver Colony is full with a good list of children waiting to get in.
There are a number of badges of different activities that the children work towards during the year. To gain these badges there are a number of simple tasks to be completed, they go on visits and spend some time exploring the local surroundings. We have people with particular knowledge of the subjects come in to talk to the Beavers.
Over the next few months our Beavers will be having a go at some basic camp cooking, and then working on the Faith Badge and Faith Partnership badge. There will be a trip to Cromwell church where the beavers will do some brass rubbing. During the summer term the Beavers will be going Canoeing.
