A QUARTER of a century of Beaver Scouts in Bognor Regis was celebrated at a party.
A total of 81 Beavers attended the event with a barbecue, birthday cake, campfire singing and a show by Malcolm the Magician; the party ended with the launch of 50 helium balloons.
Also present was county commissioner John Spickett who presented Barbara O’Connor, a Beaver colony leader at 11th Bognor Scout group, with the Chief Scout Commendation award. Several Beavers were awarded their bronze award, the highest award they can achieve.
Sue Farrant, assistant district commissioner for Beavers, thanked all those who made the evening at the Aldwick and Pagham Scout HQ a success. The 25th anniversary celebrations will continue with a trip to Legoland in October.
