If you thought a group of 6 and 7 year olds couldn’t keep quiet for more than a couple of minutes, let me tell you about Aston & Little Stoke Beaver Scouts.
On Tuesday 10th November, dressed in their Onesies and with reading books, games and colouring books, the whole colony of 18 Beaver Scouts took part in a sponsored silence to raise money for Children in Need. They kept silent for 50, yes fifty minutes and in the process raised over £200 for Pudsey.
Beaver Scouts are boys and girls from 6 – 8 yrs of age. Aston & Little Stoke meet at Aston Village Hall Tuesday evenings 6pm – 7.15pm. Beaver Scouting is 30 years old in 2016 and many events are planned to celebrate this milestone.
