Eager children invested into Beavers
A GROUP of children had the honour of being invested into the Beavers, the first club a child joins on the way to becoming a scout, at the Greystones Scout Den last Thursday.
The children, aged between six and seven, became members of the 1st Wicklow/2nd Dublin scout group. In the weeks leading up to their investiture, the 20 kids completed a number of basic tasks to show that they could work as part of a team.
Joan Jones, scout group leader, said that they were presented with a certificate last week to cement their membership in the Beavers. She said that a number of mothers and fathers as well as brothers and sisters came along to witness the beginning of their scouting careers.
If you are interested in sending your child to join the scouts in Greystones, contact Joan on (086) 3061588.
