Yellow Beaver's Log Chew for 13th February 2014

Dear Mums, Dads & Beavers

We hope you enjoyed the Valentine cards that came home last night.  I think they were of a very high standard and all the Beavers tried very hard

The Beavers were quite mad last night - you could tell that a school holiday starts today!  Hope you enjoy the week together, (more about what to do below).  I am away seeking some sun for a few days, but will be back in good time for 27th February.

On Thursday, 6th March, we will be taking part in our exciting Night-time Hike.  I will give you all the details about this after the holiday. This is part of our Adventure Badge and will take place during our normal meeting time 6.30pm-7.30pm).

We will need about 6 adults that night, so if you are free, then please do come along with us and enjoy the walk

There will be a 'Permission Form' to complete as well.  I have purchased some special safety equipment and the Beavers just need to wrap up warm and bring a torch, nature will do the rest for us that night and I am sure it will be very exciting.

Also - we will be having a Sleep-Over in May time, but more details on that will follow in due course.

Thank you to everyone to saved pennies for our Toilet Twinning charity.  We met the target of £60 and collected another £8 on top to pay for a giant toilet roll as well.  I have sent off the money today and hopefully a certificate will come back shortly, which I will display in the hall.  The Beavers can all be very proud of themselves for making other childrens' lives easier.  This goes towards our Global Challenge Badge.

Half Term Holiday .............................. Please do have a go at some badges next week.  If you haven't got the badge book to look at, you can check on-line at www.scouts.org.uk.
