Community Foodbank Boost!

Date: 13th Jul 2019 Author: News Editor

1st Farnsfield Halifax Beavers have been busy in their summer terms programme. The six to eight year olds meet on a Tuesday and have been out and about across the local area this term.

In April the section took part in the annual St Georges day parade through Southwell. Over twenty of Farnsfield Beavers took part in the parade to the Methodist church for a short service and then a drink and snack!

In May it got even busier with a Space themed activity day along with hundreds of other Beavers in nearby Calverton. It gave them chance to do activities such as tunnelling, pedal carts, inflatable football, and many more. To finish the month they had a special Science Sleepover at Ollerton Scout & Guide Activity Centre. Twenty members took part in a weekend full of science fun and games. Thank you to the leaders that organised it.

More recently in June the Beavers have been working towards their Community Impact award. This is a staged badge which follows them through all age groups in Scouting. As part of the badge the Beavers had to learn about local issues and figure out what they could do to help. The Beavers chose the local foodbank. They collected an impressive five bags for the foodbank which will come to really good use for people and families in Nottinghamshire.
