Up up and away

33 Beavers from our three colonies all had a fantastic Up up and away Sleepover held on 5th & 6th October 2019.
The action started at Tangmere Aviation Museum where the beavers learnt about the history of the site, how a plane works, the different parts of a plane and looking at all the different planes and items the museum has on display.
After lunch they walked to Oving Village Hall where the air activities continued, learning the phonetic alphabet, creating their own flying machine and much more.
After dinner, we all sang a few campfire songs and watched the film ‘Planes’.
After a few hours sleep the beaver were up early, excited for a morning full of activities include making and flying four different types of paper planes to complete the requirements for the air activities stage 1 badge.

We're banking on you. Volunteer treasurer advert

Could you be our next volunteer treasurer?
Ideally you’ll have some book keeping experience, however our current treasurer will show you the ropes and ensure a smooth hand over.
I’ll need 2 or 3 hours per week to undertake admin from home, respond to emails and process payment. Plus occasional trips to the bank and 3 or 4 evening committee meetings per year.

Beaver Space Camp

This weekend twenty-four 1st Barnham Beavers joined up with over 100 other beavers for an out of this world experience at the Arundel and Littlehampton District Beaver Space Camp.

Blasting off from Littlehampton at 09:45 hrs on Saturday, the Space Beavers participated in various activities; space challenges, solar experiments, astronaut training and rocket launching, to name just a few. Thanks to some last minute support from the technical team at Mission Control the Space Beavers were able to establish a satellite link and thus watch the England vs Sweden FIFA World Cup match!  

The Space Beaver’s shuttle took them closer to the Sun than planned! Despite the extreme heat, all successfully completed their space walk and returned to Earth on Sunday at 13:42 with only a few minor bumps and scrapes. To acknowledge their achievements, Captain Hedgehog presented all Space Beavers with the Space activity badge and special mission badge at a ceremony before being reunited with friends and family.   

Thorough planning and preparation is essential for all Space Missions; our thanks go to Captain Hedgehog and her support crew for piloting another successfully beaver mission 🚀
