For our school aged children, September is always such an important month; when they all begin a new school year. It creates that lovely feeling of a fresh start, new opportunities and added achievement.
1st Tarvin Beavers are beginning their new year on September 9th and what a great year it promises to be. We have got our Beaver Challenge to look forward to, the opportunity to be part of The Gang Show, a visit to Chester Cathedral, a radio link with scouts from around the world and a Sleepover. We'll also be learning the skills needed to achieve those all important badges, playing games and having fun!
Thanks to all the people who have helped us with fundraising, the scout and guide headquarters building has been decorated and some important repairs have been carried out. Outside, the bushes have been pruned and the paint work has been cleaned.
A number of our children have moved on to Cubs and so we are looking forward to welcoming some new Beavers to our Colony. Beavers is very popular in Tarvin and we do have a waiting list so if you would like your child to join us, please contact Jo on 01829 741474 to secure a future place. If spaces become available, our next intake will be in January 2014.
