Chinese New Year at Farnsfield Beavers

Date: 1st Feb 2017 Author: Scout Websites

During January our youngest section, Beavers aged 6 to 8, have been learning about Chinese New Year. Over the month they learnt about the cultures and gave their hand to making two full size fabric dragons with masks. Thanks to Faye Asher-Hibbett for sewing it all together. It was amazing! Coming up for the second half of the term our Tuesday Beavers have a trip to Pets At Home to complete their Aimal Friend Activity Badge and our Wednesday colony are taking a visit to Farnsfield St Michaels Church.

In our other two sections the Scout section (aged 10½ to 14) have been completing their astronautics activity badge. Designed and sponsored by the UK Space Agency this badge is all about space exploration, experiments and building your own satellite. The Cub pack (aged 8 to 10½) have been finishing their fire safety badge where they took a visit to Southwell Fire Station.

Can you help us with a badge? Join our four week adult challenge to take a taster of Scouting. If you don’t like it after four weeks we’ll be surprised! Please contact Chris on 07779324341 or email if you can help.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
