Hessle Beavers took part in the first Blacktoft Beacon Welly Walk. We explored Nut Wood, completing a quiz along the way, and finished at Raywell for some well deserved hot dogs and juice.

Healthy Foods

Beavers have been completing their Health and Fitness Activity Badge this term. We have thought about what we could take on a hike in our lunchboxes, undertaken lots of exercise, as well as trying lots of fruit and vegetables. Mango was the favourite!

10th Birthday!

Hessle Beavers have celebrated their 10th Birthday. To mark the occasion we made birthday buns with candles, which each Beaver lit as part of their Skills Challenge Badge. As we did 10 years previously we also had a focus on Remembrance, but instead of icing biscuits, this time we made a poppy wreath to display…

Room on the Broom

Beavers has a great time at their sleepover at Raywell Park. The theme was Room on the Broom, so of course we made brooms and rode on them and we also had fun clambering through the cave bus. Whilst on camp some of our Beavers completed their Cook Activity badge, making pizza and apple crumble…

Photographers and Models!

Beavers had some creative evenings, making Mother’s Day cards linked to our photographer badge, bath bombs and key rings. We hope all their mums enjoyed their gifts, and caught the kisses that were blown to them!

Emergency Aid Scenarios

We had some very accident prone Young Leaders at Beavers. However working as a team, the Beavers managed to establish what accident had happened and what treatment was needed to help their casualties.

White Ribbon Service

White Ribbon

Beavers took part in the Humberside Scout White Ribbon activities. The thought about ways in which we can use our hands to be kind to others, and also ways that we shouldn’t use our hands to be unkind. We were then creative with a white ribbon and hands. At the end of our meeting we…
