New Beaver Scouts

Scouting has made a welcome return to the town of Amble, as a Beaver Section was launched this Summer.

Beaver Scouts are boys and girls aged 6-8. At Amble we have got off to a flying start with the young people having already gained their first badge, in healthy eating.

Emma Brierly, a new Beaver Scout who is enjoying her new adventure said, ‘The best thing about Beavers is we make lots of cool things and play games. This term we are working towards the experiment badge by investigating cat’s eyes and cress seeds. We also enjoy playing games, going on visits, making new friends, and getting crafty!’

The re- establishment of Scouting in Amble is a fantastic opportunity for adults to get involved in something new, fun and exciting. We have started off small with Beaver Scouts but want to bring Scouting to more young people. To do this we need your help. To help us grow we need more adults to join our team to help run activities. Within a team, resources, responsibilities and ideas are shared. There are lots of exciting ways to get involved and not all ways require weekly commitment.

Val Hodgson, the District Commissioner for Mid Northumberland said ‘Scouting is as much fun for adults as it is for young people. The Scout Association provides fantastic training and new skills that are useful throughout life’.

If you are interested please get in touch and we can arrange an informal chat to find a way you can help out.
