Beavers

Beaver Promise 

Where do those badges go?

Uniform. For meetings at the hall, Beavers and Cubs should wear the blue Group t-shirt (please don’t buy the official Beaver or Cub t-shirt, as we have our own group design) neckerchief, Cub/Beaver sweatshirt, dark trousers (not jeans or best school trousers) and suitable footwear for running around in. As we will mainly be outside, please be prepared for the weather with coats or sun hats, as appropriate; if it is hot, don’t forget to put on sun cream & bring a named bottle of water.

For meetings not at the hall, wear old trousers and a uniform T-shirt or sweatshirt (no neckerchief) with a coat/wellingtons or old trainers/sun hat as appropriate.

COVID. We will continue to have a high emphasis on good hygiene & hand sanitizing & choose activities that avoid close contact between people. Mask wearing will now be optional but recommended indoors for Scouts, YL & Leaders. If your son/daughter is showing COVID symptoms or has tested positive, they should not attend Scouting events. Parents will be asked to collect their son/daughter if they are unwell or showing COVID symptoms, during a Scouting activity.

Hopefully, the weather will be dry this term and we will be outside as much as possible. We will still use the entrance off Sheep Street, not Victoria Road. Parents should not enter the lawn area or the church buildings unless they need to speak to a Leader (Please email Gillian about non-urgent issues). The church car park is for Leaders only, please don’t park in the residents’ spaces or the disabled parking next to the church (unless you have a permit/blue badge).
