Sunshine on Beaver Day 2016

beaver day 6beaver day 3It was a glorious day last Saturday as more than 120 Beavers competed at Beaver Day 2016 for the Jean King Trophy and celebrated 30 years of Beaver scouting.

Beavers competed in more than 20 activities including blindfold trail, beat the goalie, Kim’s game and building marshmallow towers.

After the winners were announced, we gathered around the campfire for a rousing chorus of Happy Birthday… and delicious cupcakes.

Thanks to the leaders who encouraged young people and parents to come along for a fun-filled day.

New Appointment Committee members required

Greenock and District is looking for new members to join the Appointment Committee.

The only qualification is that they are over 18 years of age. They need to undertake some training and be prepared to support interviews of adult leaders and supporters.

We are looking to increase the current membership of the committee in preparation for a recruitment drive and this will allow more rotation of interviewers.

Members do not need to be involved in Scouting.
