Next week is half term and we will not be meeting on Tuesday 23rd October but will return as normal on Tuesday 30th October.
Many of you will have recently received OSM chaser emails on upcoming events. Please could you respond whether or not you are able to attend- this helps us arrange payment in good time, ensure no one misses out and that the right number of volunteers are available to make the event a great success. It also saves you receiving further chasing emails.

All Beavers are invited to 3rd Hampton Hill for the District Explore Badge. As the name of the badge suggests we will explore part of Bushy Park. it is always a fun event.
The full details were sent out recently via OSM. Please confirm via the OSM link whether or not you are able to attend. The cost of this will be fully subsidised by the Group.
Badges at home
Every Beaver received a badge sheet that Beavers may like to try during the summer holidays. Please encourage them to bring down what they completed and we will be able to discuss and award the badges. Perhaps they could start one over the upcoming half term.
