Congratulations to everyone who won and who were runners-up in this year’s Beaver, Cub and Scout of the year awards given out at our annual open evening and AGM, and also to the first recipients of the ‘Baker Cups’ trophies given out for the most improved Beaver, Cub and Scout which will now be given out each year, of course named in memory of ‘Chief’ Barry Baker who led and gave such a huge amount of his time to keep North Richmond running for well over 50 years, and who had been part of the group all of his life since he was a Scout himself.
Some photos of the Groups 35th annual family camp, at Walton Firs last weekend, with 3 days of uninterrupted sunshine!
A couple of photos from recent Beaver activities, on a climbing day at White Spider, and this week making a Spitfire as part of the Air Activities Badge. Our beavers are keeping themselves very busy this year!
The Cubs enjoyed their Christmas party this week, with games, Pizzas and the Christmas Crackers! (and so did the Beavers and Scouts on their last nights of 2018 too). All of the sections are back in the new year. Cubs are Back Jan 8th, Beavers Jan 9th and Scouts on Jan 11th and – Merry Christmas and happy new year!
This evening, the Group hosted its first Beavers Colony meeting for many years. Everybody seemed to have great fun. The Beavers Colony will be meeting every Wednesday evening (half-term and school holidays excepted) from now on – at the Scout Hut, between 6pm and 7pm. So, if you have a boy or girl aged between 5 3/4 years and 8 years old, bring them along. Just drop us an email beforehand, at firstname.lastname@example.org (or use the “Contact Us” link at the top of this page), so that we know to expect you.
