beavers brought cheer to old folks
Beavers from St Andrews Church have been spending time out and about meeting people from the local community. Beavers visited Washington Manor Care Home to meet old folks and spread some community cheer.

Beavers spent loads of time talking to Carol and Anne about what it's like to be a beaver scout and all of the badges they had on their uniform as well as handing out homemade treats (made by adult volunteer Kerry). Leaders brought round tea and coffee while excited beavers told all about the fantastic activities they do.

Beavers also sang some of their favourite campfire songs for everyone in the day room including Alice the Camel, Go Bananas and the Beaver Rap.

Staff and residents alike were delighted by beavers enthusiasm and excitement and will welcome beavers back any time.

Beavers are the youngest section of the scout troop. Beaver scouts are young people aged 6-8. Beaver scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, dressing up, going on visits and helping others.
