The end result was 4 very stylish dams. In the final judgement Niamh and her team of Beavers had the (slightly) most stylish!

Then back home to tip water out of wellies and wash the mud off.

On 14th May, Our Beavers along with 315 West Sussex Beavers Scouts and their leaders descended upon Fishers Farm to celebrate 30 years of Beaver Scouting. They had a fantastic day with their own magic and farm shows. Lots of fun was had on tractor rides, climbing walls, jumping pillows, donut run, barrel rides, pirate boats and they even panned for gold!
Badges the Beaver came and joined in the fun and managed not to scare all the farm animals. At the end of the day we all met to sing Happy Birthday and to share some treats. As one of the Beavers said “it was the best day ever”.
