District Beaver Sleepover

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 10:00 pm

5 Mary Rose and 2 Mayflower Beavers stayed overnight with about 20 others at 1st Thame’s HQ this weekend.  After an afternoon of crafts, games and a talk from the RSPB about Red Kites, a tea of pasta and meatballs, and a film viewing, the little darlings eventually gave in and slept about 11pm.  7 hours later they were bouncing around again.  After a traditional scouting breakfast of sausages and eggy bread, more crafts and raucous games, every child was safely handed back.  Thanks to all the adults involved.
