News Update May 2022

Some pictures of the Beavers tree planting on the last weekend in March :

What wonderful weather we had for planting 120 trees around 1st Taverham scout Hut. The trees come from the Woodland Trust and with the help of their parents the Beavers set to and planted all of the trees, mission accomplished, and bacon rolls were devoured. The Beavers went on to make cone bird feeders and managed to fit in our favourite game of tower building where Albert & Penny were outright winners!

1st Taverham Scout Group is pleased to announce that Daniel Fordham has been appointed as the Chairman of 1st Taverham Scout Group.  He can be contacted at: chairman@1sttaverhamscouts.co.uk . James Wilson is currently acting as Group Scout Leader; we are looking to appoint to this post on a more permanent basis in the future.

1st Taverham Scout Group has an exciting programme of events planned, including a summer camp in Switzerland for some of the scouts.  However, some of our plans are compromised by a shortage of leaders which does limit the variety of opportunities that we are able to offer the children.

Currently, both of the Cub sections (Monday and Tuesday evenings) and the Scout section (Wednesday evenings) are short of leaders and many of the existing leaders are helping on more than one night per week, in order to keep sections viable and running smoothly.  If you would be interested in helping out, having a chat with one of the leaders, or coming along to a meeting to see what it involves, please get in touch with James Wilson at: scouts@1sttaverhamscouts.co.uk or click here.
