This Saturday 3rd Washington Beavers enjoyed a day at Bede's World in Jarrow. Beavers spent the day discovering what it would be like to live at the time of the Venerable Bede by exploring the distinctive replica wooden buildings and meeting the rare breeds of sheep, oxen and pigs which can be found on the farm. The animals are closely related to the breeds of Bede's time.

Beavers also visited St Paul's monastery which is over 1,300 years old. Beavers got to try on the monk's robes and pretend to be monks before they were allowed to make a lot of noise as they got to ring the 600 year old bell.

Everyone had a great day out and especially enjoyed the time in the park. The Leaders especially had a great day and Kingfisher enjoyed his time on the play park however what you can't see from the picture is that his feet were touching the floor!

Beaver Scouts encourages young people to have fun and to make friends as they explore the world around them. Visit our Beavers pages for more information.
