For some time our Barnham and Walberton Beaver Colonies have been running at maximum capacity – both have a waiting list of children already of age waiting to join – in particular Barnham Beavers where spaces are allocated for the next 18 months!
So our solution to this challenge is to open a third beaver colony.
On Wednesday 6th June we will be holding an open evening for those on the waiting list and anyone else interested in joining (must be 6 years old by September) or volunteering with the new colony.
It will be called ‘Eastergate Beaver Colony’ and meet on Wednesdays at St Philip Howard School, Barnham. Once fully established this group will offer a similar programme of activities to the other two colonies, with a number of joint activities throughout the year – like Barnham and Walberton Beavers already do.

Building dens is a real treat when you are a child, and even more fun when you are an adult! We need you to come along to Beavers or Cubs and support our young people. Not just to build dens, but help do map work, craft, walking, camping and make stuff from bits of wood (we call that pioneering). What we need is an extra pair of hands to help the leaders provide these fantastic activities. Interested? Contact Mark firstname.lastname@example.org
Take a look at our WS2017 photo album to see what our 20 Scouts and six leaders got up to when then joined over 3000 other Scouts and Guides for seven days of activities in the sun, wind, rain and mud!
