Craft Competition

Last Saturday was the district beavers craft competition.  The theme this year was countries and we had a lot of fun preparing for the competition by planting tulip bulbs in decorated pots from Holland.  Origami from Japan and our colony entry was a model made from junk of the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, the UK of course!  There were other crafts to make from more countries which some Beavers enjoyed doing at home to bring to the competition.

On Saturday there was a lot of crafty competition from the other colonies but we had 7 winning entries from 6th Billericay.  Well done to all our crafty Beavers.

Essex24

This weekend five of our cubs and three of our scouts had the most amazing time at Skreens Park activity centre for the County Essex24 event.

24 challenges in 24 hours.

We had a fantastic visit from Bear Grylls which set the event off to a great start :-)

The team was awarded a Gold badge each for achieving 19 of the 24 challenges for the weekend.
