Beaver Notes – January 2013

Dear Parents
Welcome back after the Christmas break.

We will be having our first activity of 2013 on the 2nd/3rd of February. We will be having a sleepover from 8pm until 11am in the Scout Hall. This will cost €5. Beavers will need a sleeping bag, ground mat and pillow for this night. Keep an eye on for updates.

The Investiture Ceremony is when a Beaver makes their Beaver promise, is presented with their neckerchief and officially becomes part of the World Scout Movement. Families are invited to join us on Monday 25th February for this special occasion. More details will be given out closer to the event.
All Beavers must have the uniform for this. This can be purchased on We will be ordering the Group Neckerchiefs and presented them on the night.
The neckerchief and badge will be available to order from next week and will cost €6.50.
