It's been a great year for the 1st Tarvin Beavers and we've had some exciting events!

We've taken part in the Woodland Watch and spent a sunny Saturday in spring discovering the delights of Tarvin Woodland Walk


Later in the year we took part in the World Jamboree, speaking by short wave radio to scouts all over the world. We also had a Faith Day at the Cathedral with Beavers dressing up as monks and, at the end of the session, being presented with their Faith Badge

In May, we went to meet the Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, and had a super fun day with Beavers from all over Cheshire

In June, five of our children raised an impressive £250.50 for charity when they completed an arduous sponsored 6 mile hike through Delamere Forest. This was followed in September when we raised a further £230.00 on another sponsored walk around the grounds of Eaton Hall, and, in December, our cake sale at Pets at Home raised £45.00!

In November we competed in the District Beaver Challenge. It was the first time we'd entered and we were proud that our Beavers gained second place. We also took part in the Remembrance Service at Tarvin

Finally, in December, the vicar came to tell us about his job and the Gang Show team came to show the Beavers how much fun it is to take part in a big production. We also entered a tree in the Tarvin Christmas Tree Festival and then we rounded the year off with a fun night out at the Christmas concert in the Community Centre

In between all that, in our colony meetings, we've had lots of fun, played games and taken part in lots of fun, played games and taken part in lots of activities.

The Beavers have gained more Badges and we are proud to say that we now have several who are eligible for the prestigious Chief Scout's Bronze Award

Our reputation as a vibrant Beaver Colony has spread, resulting in new Beavers joining our colony and a growing waiting list for places
