On Saturday 7th June 50 Beaver scouts from across the district met at Normandy for an afternoon of space themed fun. This theme was chosen to coincide with the launch of the new Space activity badge. The weather was kind, and despite the threat of rain all the Beavers were able to join in a range of indoor and outdoor activities.
These activities included decorating a constellation cookie, being able to name the eight planets in our solar system and watch a presentation on a current space mission. Thanks to Tony Lees who ran a rocket launching activity, with the 6 fastest launchers pitted against each other for a final ‘Rocket Off’ .This was won by Isak from 1st Stoughton.
The Beavers also enjoyed some traditional scouting activities such as tracking and rope making. A huge thank you to all the leaders and helpers that made the afternoon so successful.
