7th Southampton Beavers Sleepover

Posted on Sunday, October 16th, 2016

Beavers from 7th had a sleepover in hall on Saturday 15th October. They all gained the Communicator Activity Badge learning codes, sending emails and making sure they knew the home phone number. A bug hotel was made and bird feeders. Due the wet weather they had painting competition which the leaders also joined in with and made paper aeroplanes and had competition to see which went the furthest. Time was also enjoyed with our very large box of Lego and dragon flies were made from pegs and pipe cleaners. A very large breakfast was eaten on Sunday morning, could not keep up with the large amounts of toast consumed. They made their own sandwiches for lunch had one last game with the Lego before parents arrived to collect them. Everyone went home tired but happy, that included the leaders!

British Legion Poppy Collection

Posted on Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Thank you to everyone in the district who assisted Active Support in selling poppies for the British Legion. Special thanks to my own members of Active Support, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders plus some non-uniform members, from the 7th, 13th and 26th groups for all the help and long hours spent selling.

I am pleased to announce we collected the marvellous sum of £4,256.82p. That is a magnificent effort that not only helped the British Legion in their work but showed to the public that we as a youth movement are willing to help others.

Well done and thank you

George Longhurst
Active Support Manager
