Please can you share with all your leaders and scouting members how wonderful it was to see many of them in Church this morning to share the Remembrance Service – the readers and standard bearers were fantastic.Thank you again for your help in bringing the scouting groups to join the services, it is wonderful to see the uniformed youngsters, and particularly means so much to the older members of the congregation at times like the Remembrance service. All were a credit to you and the rest of the Scouting Leaders.
Elaine, the Beaver Leader, said “the Beavers were so excited to be sleeping in a tent with their friends and for two nights. They loved being with the Cubs and Scouts and helping to put up the tents”
John, the Group Scout Leader said “we have seen the group grow quickly in numbers over a short period of time across all the sections and thought it was time to celebrate our success and have the whole group camping together.
1st MARLDON BEAVERS VISIT TO TORQUAY
Our beavers recently enjoyed a visit to the Fire Station. We were made very welcome by Andy, Brian and the White Watch Crew.
We began our visit with a question and answer session and they were very impressed with the beavers knowledge of fire safety!
Then the fun really began, a full tour of the station and fire engines. They were able to try on uniform, climb into the fire engines and even bounce on the firefighters beds!!
At the end of the evening White Watch gave a demonstration for us and finally the beavers became firefighters and had a turn with the water hose……….best part of the visit!!
1st MARLDON BEAVERS “SNOOZE AT THE ZOO”
1st Marldon Beavers had a magical time at Dartmoor Zoo at Sparkwell. We enjoyed non-stop activities, including making bird feeders, setting bug traps, feeding the meerkats, monkeys and deer. A falconry display, bug hunting and so much more!

Just would love to say a huge thank you for this camp! I’ve got one very happy little girl at home. She said it was AWESOME!
Benjamin Mee joined in with our campfire fun. We sang songs and told stories………even some spooky zoo tales!!
The beavers loved talking with Benjamin, drinking hot chocolate and toasting their marshmallows.
He even signed a book for us!
This was an amazing camp and thoroughly enjoyed by all the children and adults. Having the zoo all to ourselves in the evening and first thing in the morning was just amazing!
Fabulous memories have been made with our young people!
Looking forward to our next exciting adventure……………..
