A weekend to remember!
This from the JUNE INGLEBORO' INFO monthly newsletter:
For parents, leaving a six-year-old at a sleepover must be daunting, but they had no need to worry as everyone had a super time at the District Beaver sleepover which was held last month at Mealbank Hall.
From the minute they arrived, the Beavers were kept busy with a huge range of activities including making their own packed lunch, designing a T-shirt and packing their day sack for a walk to the park where they enjoyed a picnic and playtime on the swings.
In the afternoon, as well as a long walk, the Beavers conquered their fears by lighting a small fire. Toasting marshmallows over altar fires safety manned by the Scout leaders, generated much fun, as did creating pizzas and decorating a cupcake for tea.
To round off the day, the youngsters watched a DVD before snuggling into their tents which had been pitched in the hall.
Naturally, the next day started early but, after lots more fun things to do, the Beavers finally waved goodbye to the wonderful team of leaders who had put so much effort into giving them a weekend to remember.
Congratulations go to District Beaver Scout Leader, Gemma Tyrie, who subsequently gained her Indoor Nights Away Permit.
Well done all those who took part - and thank you for sharing it with us all.
