With the new social distancing world that we live in it was all change at Beavers this week. We set the Beavers the task of making a flower basket for mothers day and I have posted the photos that I have been sent of the results. Well done to everyone who took part and a big thanks to all the mums and dads who helped with the task.

Our aim, while we are closed for face to face meetings, will be to have a Beaver meeting or activity every week, until …

At unusual we are in a Beaver time warp with real time passing much more quickly in the real world.Our Beavers have been learning all about space, playing space games, eating food out of plastic bags, playing space skittles and settling down to bed time stories from space.

The Autumn Beaver sleepover was a huge success with 18 Beavers spending the night way at Petersfield District Guide HQ. The theme of the sleepover was Master Chef and after arriving mid-afternoon, the Beavers soon git stuck into the task of making up their shopping lists and heading off to Tesco with a fist full of money to buy their ingredients.

We started cooking our 3-course dinner just after 5 pm and the Beavers worked in small groups to make cheesy nachos, chicken and cheese burritos and cookie dough pizzas. While …

This year we took part in our second Damboree at Stedham with 7 Liss Beavers staying overnight and a couple of day visitors on Saturday. We joined in with Partersfield, Sheet and Harting Beaver Colonies and had 50 Beavers staying overnight and another 15 visiting during the day.

We were fortunate with the weather again, warm during the day and not too cold at night and were able to try out lots of scouting skills and work towards challenge badges.

Hopefully, some of these photos will give you an idea of …

Funday 2018 was no less exciting than all the previous ones that we have attended. With 16 Beavers and 2 Cubs, this was one of the largest groups we have taken.
These pictures are in chronological order of events which is why they jump around a bit when we were in 2 groups.
Our Beavers were fearless again and climbing to new heights, the photos just do not do justice to quite how high up some of the Beavers climbed.

We spent the night away with our good friends from 1st Petersfield at the Gilbert White Field Study Centre at Selborne. We love going there, not only is there a fantastic wildlife themed programme but the Beavers get to sleep in a 500 year old barn, with underfloor heating, great when the outside temperature is only 1C.
Here are photos of some of the activities that we got up to in our time at the barn.

Sunday was Funday for Liss Beavers who visited National Scout HQ at Gilwell Park. We could not have had a better day for the activities, the weather was great and the queues were short so no waiting around.
Most of our Beavers had a go at abseiling and climbing and there is at least one picture of your child in this collection.

Last weekend, Liss Beavers joined up with Petersfield Beavers for a sleepover in Chichester. This was the first time we have tried an outside sleepover in tents so it was new experience for Beavers and Leaders alike.
In the space of 24 hours we managed to pack in an amazing mount at our space camp and all the Beavers graduated as Beaver Astronauts. We had an astronaut agility test, walked to the Chichester Planetarium, chilled out in tent, cooked marshmallows around the camp fire and fired water bottle rockets.
