Beaver Scout Easter Fun Day

Crawley District Beaver Scouts and their families enjoyed all the fun of Scouting yesterday when 13 Colonies came together to celebrate.

Originally the concept of Yvonne, ADC Beavers, she pulled together the team of adults who delivered this event. Leaders and their teams delivered fun activities and crafts for the Beavers, their siblings and families.

Then to the spacious games field for fun – all 135+ joined by the Badges the Beaver and the Easter Rabbit. Many thanks to the magnificent Joe Hellyer, our County Assistant Commissioner.

The campfire is one of the best Scout activities and this one was the very best. Songs that Beavers delight in, delivered enthusiastically by Joe and Adam – brilliant. Then a long walk home with an Easter egg and commemorative blanket badge.

So many happy families, smiles and joy. This is what volunteering through Scouts is all about. Many of the Leaders who put on this event were doing this sort of thing for the first time, sharing the experience with others. They did incredibly well and could do even more with more volunteers

All members of the District are next invited for the Queen’s Jubilee event on the 4th June at Stanford.
