New recruits are always made welcome and usually make new friends quickly during their first evening. Every Beaver - and new member - joins one of the four 'Lodges', identified by the colour of their neckerchief woggle. This promotes a healthy spirit of competition and encourages individuals to pull together to achieve goals through teamwork.
The Beavers earn points towards their 'Lodges' through their groups' and their own individual efforts. Many of the activities are undertaken as part of the Beaver/Cub/Scout tradition of earning badges, showing the skills they have acquired during sessions. They also make new friends and work together as a group doing activities which include:
- cooking pizzas and cakes
- making kites, Christmas, Mother's Day cards, etc.
- growing plants from seeds
- talking about other countries and their flags
- painting Easter Eggs
The Beavers also get out and about on trips, to local parks and organised group events.
Both girls and boys can join the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
Beavers meet at 6.30 p.m. until 7.30 p.m in the Church Hall
