Edinburgh Zoo 2022!

Welcome to Edinburgh Zoo 2022!

Saturday 6th August 2022

In 2000, Eddie Wright (known as Kingfisher to our beavers) joined the group and with Lynn his wife took the helm of our beaver colony, with inspirational enthusiasm he inspired generations of beavers over 18 years with many memorable programmes, including building a 30 foot pirate ship out of pallets for a weekend camp. Sadly Eddie passed away in 2018 and will be remembered as an energetic, creative and lively man.

In his memory, money was donated to 3rd Washington Scouts with the intention of holding a group event. Due to COVID, we have been limited to what we can do. We can now announce that we are having a whole group trip to Edinburgh Zoo in his memory.
