Beaver Scout Update


I hope you are well.  I have some exciting new developments in Eastleigh Beavering to inform you of.

Firstly, I am delighted to inform you that we have appointed Sandy McGregor and Esme Jacobs as the new District Beaver Leaders.  They will work alongside me to help plan new district events and I know their experience and enthusiasm will help us arrange some really great activities.

Secondly the date of the next District Beaver meeting is Tuesday 30th June 8pm at my house.  You are all welcome and an agenda will be sent out nearer the time.

I have some provisional dates for your diaries:

Wacky Races 11am – 1:30pm Saturday 18th July The Hub, Bishopstoke – date to be confirmed and details to follow.

Space Badge evening at Winchester Science centre – Thurs 3rd December 5:45 – 7:15 – to be confirmed.

Beaver 30th Birthday Party 6:30 – 8:30 Gambado, Eastleigh a Friday in late January / early Feb to be confirmed.

Once these dates are firmed up I’ll let you know.

We thought it would be a nice idea to arrange a social evening for all colony leaders and helpers (and partners).  Rather than squeezing it in to Christmas, are you interested in a skittles evening at the Phoenix in Twyford.  Sat 20th February 2016, 7 – 11?  £10 gets us the skittle hire and a meal.  If enough of us think it is a good idea then I’ll book the venue and arrange the meal and money nearer the time.  Please let me know.

I think that’s it for now.  Keep those Bronze award requests coming in!

Kind regards
