Beavers walk in Monivea Woods

Monivea Woods (pic from http://www.thestaycation.com)

We are planning a walk in Monivea Woods with the Beavers this weekend on Sunday.

The plan would be to leave the community centre at 10.30am and return around 1pm. Depending on numbers, there may be enough spaces in the Scouters cars to bring everyone.

Although the weather forecast seems good for Sunday at the moment, Beavers will need rain gear (trousers & jacket) and waterproof footwear. We’ll also ask them to being a light snack & drink.

Could you please let us know by text to 086 0545329 with the Beaver’s name and whether they can attend or not?
