Beavers go online

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 the current Coronavirus Pandemic affects our this will include holidays. Everything we do will count towards a badge

Thomas sent me a step by step process too.

Beaver Sleepover – Nov 19 (Photos)

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 some Beavers were a little excited at the prospect of spending the night in a sleeping bag and wanted to bed down early, the rest got on an cooked the whole meal, with a little help from the leaders.

After dinner and washing up, the Beavers settled down to watch a movie in their sleeping bags. Most of the Beavers were asleep by 10:30 but there was a hardcore of those that wanted to stay up as late as they could, (same group that wanted to go to bed early strangely enough). The leaders finally got to go to bed at 1am when the final Beaver gave up the fight to stay awake; it did give us enough time to start planning the next sleepover)!

Sunday morning started a bit later than planned and after tidying all the sleeping kit away we got stuck into breakfast, introducing the Beavers into eating Coco Pops straight out of the box, to save on washing up.

On the whole a good sleepover with no less than 10 Beavers spending their first night away, and everybody being awarded the Cooks badge.

Damboree 2019

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 what we got up to over the weekend.

Many thanks to Mango, Chestnut, Emily (Flip) and Laura (Flop) for giving up their weekend to help out.

Save the date 3-5 Jul 2020 for next years Damboree, we are already planning it.

Beaver Funday 2018 (Photos)

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.

Beaver Sleepover Nov 2017 (Photos)

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.
