Broughton Beaver Award


1st Broughton Beaver Scouts have been working hard recently to complete the Welsh Beaver Scout Award. They had to achieve five different elements over a year to gain the award, from learning about Wales and the Welsh way of life to being adventurous outdoors.


Over the past year the Beavers have been on a St David's Day Scavenger hunt with other local groups, visited a police helicopter where they had a talk and a chance to go in the helicopter, been to see a pantomime, paid a visit to a local fire station and even tried their hands at archery whilst on an overnight camp.


Six year old Jack said 'I went to the fire station, I got to spray the hose and have a ride in the fire engine twice, I tried a helmet on and it was really heavy. My favourite thing to do in Beavers is playing games.'


This award is only available to Beaver Scouts within Wales with the aim of increasing their awareness of their Welsh heritage. Once a Beaver Colony begins work on the award they have a year to complete it, and during that year they can make up a scrap book showing all of the different activities they do. Once the award is completed all beavers involved receive a badge which can be sown onto their uniform.


Beaver Scout Marcus said 'I went on the walk for remembrance Sunday, I walked and sang songs and it was lots of fun. My favourite thing to do in beavers is craft, the last thing we made was a money box for Children in Need and put some money in it'
