With continued road closures due to the flooding, Cubs and Scouts will take place at alternative venues this evening. Parents please check your emails/texts for updates. The Beaver programme will continue to run as planned with visits for the two weeks before half term.
As most of you are aware Hambledon has suffered flooding over the weekend, with some of the roads through the village closed to traffic. Leaders will be reviewing the situation throughout the week, so keep an eye on the web site, emails and texts to check if meetings have been moved or cancelled.
We do currently plan to run Beavers on Tuesday 21st January, but be aware there is no access to the village hall by car. Please park in Green Lane or Stewarts Green and walk to the hall. You will need wellies or you will have very wet feet, please take care as the water may be deep in places and bring a torch so you can spot the sand bags in the dark. Can everyone please bring a change of footwear and change out of wellies in the foyer.
On Thursday 23rd January, Cubs will take place in the Ashling Pavillion at St. George’s Park in Denmead, at the usual time. Please use the car park on Southwick Road.
Throughout the Autumn term the beavers have been working to complete the Captain Ketch Challenge Badge. This is special badge to support Hampshire Scouts Ambassador James Ketchell and his current adventure to cycle around the world in 6 months. Once completed he will be the first person to have rowed the Atlantic, climbed Everest and cycled around the world.
The beaver colony have been learning about cycling, making spokey dokeys for their bikes and completing time trials around the field. They have also been tracking James’s progress on his adventure and learning about exercise and fitness with an exercise class.
Well done to everyone for completing the challenge just in time for Christmas.
