Valentines night and investing new Beavers
New Beavers induction evening, and Valentines night (Feb 11)
Caring and sharing - that's the Beavers. On Valentines evening we make biscuits for our special ones, and also welcome the new members as invested Beavers
We started the evening by making fabulous creations to take home - bisuits decorated with all manner of romantic additions. Well, some looked more like mini castles of marshmallow, but I'm sure the mums and dads who received them thought they were the best things ever. We also learnt about St Valentine and why everyone goes ker-azy on 14 February.

The other half of the session was to invest our new mermbers into fully fledged Beavers. Mums, Dads, Grannys, siblings and everyone who was everyone came to see the emotional ceremony. Each new Beaver said their promise, accepted their scarf and woggle, and got their new badges to sew on their tops. And, by the end of the third handshake, they had just about remembered you shake with your left hand! We also said farewell to those Beavers swimming up to become Cubs - we'll miss you!
