1st Blisworth Beavers meet on a Wednesday night 6 - 7pm at our community Scout hall (to get to the hall, follow the track up opposite the school, go to the end and there should be an open gate, if not, wait to a leader arrive! Then keep following the track around and you will see the hall)
What a year that was…just see what we got up to!
Beavers currently have 2 leaders and 12 Beavers;
Some of the AMAZING activities we have done include:
A drive in movie themed Sleep Over (Brave Leaders!) , whereby the Beavers made their own cars to sit in and watched the film. Had visits from Birds of Prey, smaller reptiles etc, a veterinary nurse and her dog to show us how to look after their pets, someone showed us little sign language (ie how to sign their names). We went on a trip to Wells Near the Sea and another to The Cotswold. One of the Beavers is a very talented artist and he presented an evening showing us his artwork. We visited the Fire Station at Mereway and did a walk from Milton Malsor to Blisworth. We made pancakes, held a collection for Harvest Festival to support to the Hope Centre, did a litter picked around the playing field and had a scavenger hunt, a village walk, a gardening evening and an evening at Pinnacle climbing centre to round off this year. And we presented three Chief Scout Bronze Awards to three Beavers….. PHEW!!!!
In addition to all that Beavers also supported Blisworth's own events:
The stunning, funny and remarkably entertaining Scout Talent Show.
A very successful Bonfire Night which will be an annual event open to all villagers.
A Remembrance Sunday Parade at St John the Baptist Church
The Santa Sleigh walk round Blisworth fundraising for charity.
The Wild & Woolly raising much needed funds for 7 different charities.
The St George’s Day Parade linking up with Milton Malsor & Roade Scout Groups.
The Blisworth Canal Festival, running a Tombola, fund raising, litter picking, rubbish bin emptying, and guiding lost visitors.
