Tarvin Scouts

Tarvin Cubs and Beavers were delighted recently to celebrate two pieces of good news.
The 1st Tarvin Beaver Colony were proud to announce that nine of their number had been awarded the Chief Scouts Bronze awards having successfully completed a number of challenges. In front of an audience of proud parents, they received their awards from one of the local Police Community Officer Team.

The 1St Tarvin Cubs were delighted to receive some much needed camping equipment from the Masonic organisation in Christleton. Such was the generosity of the donation that it needed a trailer, kindly offered by the Vicar, to bring the things back to Tarvin.

The Tarvin Beavers and Cubs were reformed in 2011 after an absence of ten years. Though the Brownies survived during this period, the lack of volunteer helpers hindered the reformation of the boys organisations. Indeed, it is the lack of potential Scout leaders that is preventing the formation of a new Scout troop, even though there is a waiting list of boys, and girls, eager to carry on in the movement.

The image and content of modern scouting has changed considerably in recent years, less knots and woggles, more sport, community and challenge. The Chief Scout is Bear Grylls and it is his spirit of adventure that inspires so many of the activities on offer. The movement depends on its adult volunteers so if you think that this might be something that you would like to get involved with, talk to Akela Jo Richards on or go to
Tarvin is very lucky to have such a dedicated team of people enabling our young boys and girls to have such a great time growing up.
