17th Norwich held a virtual camp! They had tea parties, quizzes, cooked outside, camped/made dens, tried activities, went on virtual  visits, went on daily exercise, baked, questioned the CC, made gadgets and laid out kit!!

1st Gorleston had afternoon tea.


12th King’s Lynn Beaver Scouts held a sleepover, which included Decorating dens, preparing tasty treats, clearing up, doing the Norfolk Scouts ‘warm up’ and enjoying a scavenger hunt with the Mayor at our zoom online meeting!  🙂🇬🇧

“The Mayor has asked me to thank you for inviting him to your Beaver Scout celebrations on Friday, which he and his wife thoroughly enjoyed.  They were blown away by seeing the children’s dens and loved the sing-a-long and game! We thought it would be nice to be able to have a record for the archive and with this in mind, I am attaching a signature sheet for the Mayor’s visitors’ book, which is held at the Town Hall” 😊

1st Beetley held a campfire 🔥 

But in addition to all the group activities many people decorated their homes with bunting, flags and dressed up dummies.
