Beavers Scouts gnaw how to win

Rutherglen Reformer - - Drive Time -

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.
