This is Hedgehog (Jane West) our Beaver leader
Hedgehog runs our Beaver group with the support of adult assistants and helpers and two members of the Warrior Explorer unit. Beavers meet on a Tuesday Evening, starting at 17:00 and finishing at 18:15. Beavers, like all sections, accept boys and girls,
they can join at six years old and then move onto Cubs at eight years old.
Beavers have an active and exciting programme and during their time in Beavers they begin the journey of understanding the scouting values through being introduced to simple map
reading, cooking on open fires, exploring nature. They often have visiting guest speakers or go off site to visit other people who help us such as RNLI, Fire Service etc.
Beavers can also join sleep-overs and one night camps: this is a good introduction
to future camping activities as they move through the older sections. Lots of the Beavers have stayed with the Group through Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, some even returning to become adult leaders.
