Beavers Report – May 2009 By on May 14, 2009 (updated June 3, 2014) In Beavers News / 0 comments The Beavers are thriving and we now have a regular 18 young people attending our very busy colony and about 40 on the waiting list. We have now got a regular parent helper and have had a good response from the parents with 3/4 parent helpers for the pond dipping and hike activities. We are still looking for a permanent helper as we would like to extend the Beaver family to 24 young people. A few parents have very kindly offered to take on the Administration work for Kathy and me which is very helpful and much appreciated. Activities have included a pets evening, animal quiz, sock puppets, a talk from the guide dogs society and meeting a guide dog, pizza/fruit salad making, making sandwiches, smoothies and pancakes, easter egg hunt, nests and eggs and planting sunflower seeds to name a few. We also have an exciting programme for the rest of the summer term to include; pond dipping, packing a rucsac, knots, presentation from children for their hobbies badge, putting up at tent, hike and a picnic with parents. Looking forward to a new term and year in September.
