Dear Mums, Dads & Beavers
We hope you enjoyed our 'Fright Halloween Nite' this week.
We played loads of spooky games and each had a bag of Halloween themed sweets and a Halloween themed lucky dip to go home with. Thank you to everybody, without exception who took the trouble to dress up as it really made it a lovely night. We had 3 costume winners who won suitably gory prizes as well as sweets and a trophy. I will get the photographs put up on the wall for next week for you all to see.
Next week is going to be busy........
On Tuesday, 5th November 2013, we have the Guy Faulks Firework Night starting at 6.30pm. We will be joining the Cubs & Scouts. This is a free event (you do not need to pay subs) and we hope you can come. This is also the first night for our 4 Beavers to start their Link with Cubs. Good Luck to them.
Please bring back the Grand Draw tcket Counterfoils & money for the tickets you have sold as it will be drawn during the evening.
Next Thursday, 7th November 2013, we have the Investiture Ceremony for our 4 new Beavers. The ceremony will be at the beginning and lasts about 5 minutes, so we hope that the Mums, Dads and Grandmas for those new Beavers can come along and watch. Don't forget to bring your camera! They will be nervous and so we will want to start on time.
Then, Sunday, 10th November 2013, in common with the rest of the UK, is the Annual Remembrance Day Parade & Wreath Laying ceremony.
Beavers will need to meet Jeff Holiday, Group Scout Leader at the top of Flemming Square at 2.30pm and then the parade sets off at 2.45pm to walk to St Mary's Church (Netherhall Corner) for the Service in the Church.
Immediately after this, everybody crosses the road to the Memorial Gardens and a Wreath is laid at the cenotaph. Please wear a poppy as well as your uniform. This will be the first time that the Beavers have been able to fly our new Colony Flag and so will be very exciting.
Then everybody walks to the Maryport Rugby Club in Mealpot Road, where tea and biscuits will be served for everyone. This is where the Beavers will be dismissed from. For their own safety and for your peace of mind, It is important that they do not leave at any time before this.
Mums and Dads are invited to watch their child in the Parade, join in the service in Church & at the Cenotaph and for refreshments afterwards.
The following Thursday, 14th November 2013, there will be NO BEAVER MEETING and we return the week after on Thursday, 21st November 2013 and meet weekly thereafter up to Christmas as usual.
