January brings some exciting activities for Farnsfield Beavers. On Saturday 21st January 10 members of Farnsfield Beavers took part in the 27th annual scout challenge walk. The event comprises of over 1,500 other young people walking between 1 and 18 miles depending on the age group. Farnsfield Beavers took part in the smaller walk which saw them walk 1½ miles around a local campsite taking on several sensory challenges including 40 feely bags and braille communication challenge. Thank you to everyone involved. This term the Beavers, aged 6 to 8, are exploring their animal friendly badge with a trip to Pets At Home.
