Yellow Beaver's Log Chew for 9th January 2014

Dear Mums., Dads and Beavers


Welcome back to our new term at Beavers.  I hope the Beavers will enjoy themselves


This week, I sent you home a plastic milk bottle to collect 1p coins in -  this is part of our Global Challenge and will help help those in 3rd world countries without a proper toilet lead a healthier life.  I hope we can twin our toilet at Scott House with one abroad before the Easter holidays.  I hope you will agree that it is a worthwhile cause. More information, including a  film clip can be seen on the www.toilettwinning.org website. Please do have a look.  it is quite a humbling experience to watch!.

Thanks to those who signed up to 'The Parent Rota'.  I need to make sure I have 2 other adults each week.  I will ask you to assist me with simple tasks, but if you can't manage, I won't insist! Please do have a look at this when you drop off your child.  It is stuck to the kitchen 'hatch' doors.  If the Rota is not completed for that night, we will not be able to meet.  I am sorry, but Scout Association Rules say that for safety reasons, there must be more than one adult present for the meeting

Congratulations to our new Lodge Leaders: Joe D, Luc & Bill. I am sure they will do a good job.

This coming week, we welcome 3 new Beavers:  Cohen, Owen S & Mitchell and I know that all Beavers will make them welcome.

James, Owen H, Henry & Luke will be invested on 30th January 2014 (so will need their uniform by then please).


Our (delayed) Christmas activity is on Saturday, 1st February 2014 at FUNTASTIC at Workington (Above Wilkinson's & Bingo) from 3.00pm to 5.00pm and the cost is £6.50p.  You will need to organise your own transport to and from the venue.  If Mums/Dads would like to stay with me, that is ok, alternatively, just pick up at the end. If you would like to come, then bring the money this THURSDAY, 16th January so that I can book the places & pay a deposit in advance.  I will then give you a 'permission form' to fill in and return to me before the event takes place.

Please email or call me if you have any queries about this week's Log Chew
