open afternoon & agm

Saturday 4th September 2021 at 4pm.

We will be hosting our customary 1st Hinchley Wood Scouts open day on Saturday 4th September 2021 at 4pm. Despite the successes of out virtual event last year, we are keen to catch-up with people face-to-face so will be holding our usual event at the Hut, albeit with some changes to make people feel comfortable. 

This includes holding the event outside under the marquee with plenty of sanitiser and open air. There will be activities & games for all – not just Beavers, Cubs & Scouts but siblings and potential members too.

All are welcome!

Beavers reach new heights in Spring 2018

Reaching the top…

At the end of a hectic spring term, which involved the Beavers making thank you candles at the Shinnyo-en temple, frying pancakes and experimenting with eggs, the group tested their fear of heights.

They did brilliantly: all the Beavers encouraged each other to do their best. It was great to see them working together and supporting each other as well as challenging themselves.

With most (or perhaps all I think!) reaching the heights then they all deserve a big well done… We were very proud!

Beavers get some target practice in…

With a few early evening summer rays still around in late September, some very excited Beavers headed off to enjoy the delights of Laser Tag at Campaign. Everyone was kitted up in army fatigues, supplied with a laser gun after a safety briefing and sent off into various scenarios to play ‘Capture the Flag.’

It was a great way to burn off some energy whilst enjoying the great outdoors: running round the woods, hiding in the buildings, trenches and camouflage areas shooting each other (but with the added bonus of no pain or paint splatter to contend with).

Some unexpected young ‘commanders’ came to the fore, organizing their team with much shouting and encouragement – a healthy rivalry in a fun afternoon’s entertainment. An hour and a half later, some very hot weary Beavers returned home after ‘their best trip yet!’
