Brilliant Beavan 2019

Date: 29th Sep 2019 Author: Scout Leader
4th make wonderfully wet and muddy memories at the Beavan Challenge.

This year we took 16 Sea Scouts, split into two junior and two senior teams to the 41st Beavan Challenge, organised by West Wirral District Scouts and hosted by Tawd Vale Adventure Centre.

Competing in a range of traditional Scouting challenges and activities with focus on teamwork and applied effort, teams of four Scouts, in one of two categories compete against 41 other teams from across Merseyside for the Beavan Challenge.

The overall winners in both scout sections was 1st Newton Scouts with first place in the Junior and Senior categories, a huge congratulations on their achievements.

Our 4th Heswall teams placed third in both junior and senior categories, and a huge congratulations to Sam, James, Jack and Joe for winning the 4th Heswall Sea Scouts inter-troop Beavan Challenge.

Third place in both categories is a great achievement considering we spend our summers doing what we enjoy most, messing about in boats…

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
