Every other year I invite parents to bring along an experiment of their choice to showcase to the beavers. This year we had 6 dads, 1 grandad and 1 mum. The beavers moved from table to table while the adult helpers explained the hands on experiments. From this we have gained an occasional helper. Yes! Badge work completed, forms for adult appointments completed and a chance for the leaders to chill out and wander around getting to know the young people.
Badger – Beaver Leader
Well done today to all Cubs and Scouts who turned out to dish out over 3000 bottles of water and clear up afterwards. We ran 2 stations at High Row and Abbey Rd and I was told by several runners and the organisers what an awesome job was done by all. Credit to Scouting
Message from Wendy Littlewood (10k Organising team)
“Please pass on a massive well done and thanks to the Darlington Scouts, cubs and beavers who were a fantastic help at the Darlington 10k today.
I was so delighted to see them expertly manning the water station on the route and also at the end.
They were excellent and made the run even more special for me and each and every runner.
A real credit to scouting.”
