Beavers Report – December 2009

The Beaver section continues to thrive, and will in the New Year be expanding to take 24 Beavers, thanks to continued help from parents. This last term the Beavers have been working towards their Air Activities badge. This involved making paper aeroplanes, finding out about different forms of air transport. To help with the badge […]

Group Christmas Show 2009

This year the hut was very festive for the event thanks to the wonderful decorations provided by John Gunner of Wood Street, who spent the best part of an afternoon decorating the hall. We had a great turn out from the parents to see the Beavers read a festive poem. The Cubs perfomed ‘Twas the […]

Cub Handicraft Competition 2009

On the 24th of November we entered a team into the Guildford West District Cub Handicraft Competition. One of our Cubs also joined 5th Guildfords team to make up the numbers.

Cub Cooking Competitions

On the 3rd of October we entered two teams into the Guildford West District Cub Cooking Competition.

The only other stipulation was that the recipe had to consist of the core ingredients as set out […]

2009 Executive Committee Chairman’s Report

How quickly a year goes by- a successful year for our Group in terms of increased numbers in all the sections. As an ex-Beaver Leader I’m especially pleased to hear the Beavers are doing so well under Amanda’s leadership as the Beavers are the real basis for all the other sections. With regard to social […]

2009 Group Scout Leaders Report

All the sections have continued to provide a range of activities through out the year… The Beaver section struggled at the beginning of the year while we tied to find a new leader, my thanks to the ADC Beavers for support during this time. Thankfully by July Amanda had volunteered / been persuaded to take […]
