Yellow Beaver's Log Chew 27th February 2014

Dear Beavers, Mums & Dads

We hope you enjoyed our Banana Night last night and especially the Banana Splits we made during the evening. Thanks to Nicola for helping us with these

Ethan, one of our Scouts has joined us for a (minimum) 6 week stay while he is working on his Community Badge.  Welcome to him.

We have received our framed Certificate from the Toilet Twinning Organisation confirming we are now twinned with a toilet in Napal.  If you look in the loo, the certificate is on the window ledge and you can see what it looks like.  Thanks once again.  We are feeling very flushed with success!


Just to remind you that next week, 6th March 2014 is our Night Hike along the Prom.  This will count towards 2 badges - Hikes Away and Adventurous Activities.

Each Beaver will need a torch (more for their own re-assurance, I think) as well as a warm coat, and hat and gloves if it is unusually chilly.

I have some safety equipment that we will while we are walking to  make sure no-one gets lost.

I will arrange for a hot snack at the end for everyone, so it would be very useful if you could let me know who (Beaver &/or Adults) is coming so that I can do the shopping.

It will also mean we are not hanging around waiting for anyone if I know your child cannot make it.

We will set off promptly at 6.30pm and walk towards the Golf Course.

I will need to have 5 parents with me during the evening.

If you are coming along, you do not need to fill in a form.

However, if your child is coming on their own, you do need to fill in the attached Activity Form, giving your consent and bring it along on the night and hand it to me.

The Scout Association Rules say that I cannot take your child without the form.

So - I am very excited about our first Night Hike that the Colony has every undertaken and can't wait.

If you are not sure about the meeting point - please ring me

I will be there from 6.10pm waiting for you
