Members of the County ACC/ADC Beaver section were out today at the Heart of England Conference Centre on a very cold and wintry day to consolidate the planning for the Beaver County Activity day on June 17th. A site visit was held to get the contingency plan into being for the safe arrival and exit of our Beaver Scouts on what will be a fabulous day full of fun and activities, not to mention making new Scouting friends from around the County!!!!! However!!!!! WE NEED YOUR HELP!! We need people to help with the delivery of the day, so whether you're a dad, mum, uncle or grandparent, we have a job for you to do!!!!!! Please ask your child's section leader to put you in touch with me so that we can make sure that our young people get the very best experience possible from this brilliant day.
Well what an achievement from our youngest Scouts, and a fabulous start to Nuneaton Districts Youth Shaped month!!!!!! It all started out as part of their team work badge and as part of You Shape week. Coton beavers had a log chew and decided that they would raise money for "old people" aka Dementia U.K. by selling their old toys and books and cakes. They organised their own collecting donations, designed the posters and invited their friends and family as well as manning the sale itself. And they raised the grand total of £227.18!! Well done Coton Beaver Scouts!!!!!
