Beavers Scouts gnaw how to win
The 113th Beavers got their hands on the annual district shield at a tournament in Rutherglen.
Eight Beaver scout colonies from across the south and east of Glasgow took part at the football pitches at Stonelaw High School on April 29.
The group from Burnside, who last won the competition in 2015, put on a glorious display which pleased leader Robert Clements.
He said: ”Winning the football competition was a wonderful moment for the beaver scouts.
“They enjoyed meeting and playing with beavers from across the district and had great fun running up and down the park, scoring the occasional goal.”
The winners’trophy was presented by district commissioner Eric Donnelly.
Beaver Scouts are aged six and seven and are the youngest section in the scouting family, just setting out to explore the world of fun and adventure.
They meet on Wednesday nights at the scout hall in Crawfurd Road, Burnside.
And due to the popularity of the group, they are also looking at opening a second beaver colony.
However, they do need adults willing to become leaders and complete their training if that dream is to become a reality.
In other Beaver Scout news, the group enjoyed their annual parent and child sleepover in Fife at the weekend with a theme of cowboys.
Activities focus on making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others.
