Thursday Beavers Update

CHIEF SCOUT’S BRONZE AWARD

imageThis week two of our Beavers gained their Chief Scout’s Bronze Award. This prestigious Award can only be achieved by Beavers who have completed all six of their Beaver Scout Challenge Awards (Promise, Friendship, Fitness, Creative, Global and Outdoor). It can take up to two years to complete these challenges and these Beavers have worked hard to make this happen, completing activities at home when necessary. So massive congratulations to Bradley K and James H.

MOVING ON

imageThursday Beavers have reached the end of yet another term – which means it is time to say goodbye to some of our older Beavers who have reached the age of 8 and are ready to move on to Cubs. Aaron C, Bradley K and James H all received their Moving On certificate and badges, and are all going to Manannan Cubs. We have really enjoyed having the boys in Beavers. They have all been well behaved and enthusiastic and we will miss them, but wish them all the very best at Cubs.

Beavers Visit the Elim Church

Thursday Beavers recently visited Onchan Elim Church. This visit, as well as forming part of their Faith Activity Badge and Promise Challenge, was also an opportunity to meet new people and see new places in their local community.

The Beavers had a fantastic time. The Reverend John Powell made everyone feel very welcome. He explained a little bit about the Pentecostal Church and the different types of things that they do at the Church – from ceremonies to youth groups. The Beavers enjoyed looking at all the different flags in the Church, each one representing the country of the members of the Onchan Elim Church congregation. I believe there were 26 different flags! The Beavers were able to go downstairs and see the rooms which are used by the Playgroup and the Youth Club. They finished the evening with juice and a couple of sweets.

The boys have settled in very quickly and they were all really excited and looking forward to getting invested and receiving their badges and scarves. Welcome to all the new starters – we hope you enjoy your time with Thursday Beavers and 2nd Onchan Scout Group.
