Witham Beaver Colony – A Brilliant New Adventure

In the last couple of weeks, a new Beaver Colony was opened at 1st Chilwell and Attenborough Scout Group. They’ve had two meetings so far and they have already begun learning key scouting skills such as lighting fires and eating marshmallows. We can’t wait to see what other fantastic activities the leaders have got lined up for the future.

Beavers is the scouting section for 6-8 year olds. The aim is to teach the young people the basics of scouting through fun and games so that they are active and learning at the same time. There’s the opportunity to earn a wide variety of badges and undertake a huge assortment of events on offer from the Group and District.

2nd Beeston need your help!

2nd Beeston need your clicks! – 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts need to start raising money to replace their HQ building which is over 60 years old.

In order to support all the great work we do with boys and girls up to 18, and to have a facility that is accessible and usable by all, they need to build a new HQ.

Being a charity partner for Trent Barton buses will be a great opportunity to launch their fundraising efforts.

Remember to use the group name, 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts.
