A Weekend of Autumn Fun

Beavers find the Green Man

All the sections at 20th Worcester have been having fun with autumn leaves and trees this weekend.

On Friday our Beavers and Cubs went on a Green Man hunt in Worcester Woods, collecting branches and leaves on the way to build their own Green Man. Meanwhile our Scouts worked towards their Forester Activity Badge by learning about tree identification and woodland management. Then they planned activities to run for the Beavers and Cubs at our group visit to Trotshill Community Orchard on Saturday.

Scouts teaching the Beavers about trees

On Saturday the whole group spent the morning at the Community Orchard. We climbed trees, collected apples, pressed and tasted our own apple juice, bug hunted, trimmed hedges, pitched our new event shelter, wassailed and lit a miniature bonfire. The Beavers and Cubs really enjoyed the tree identification activity the Scouts had planned. I think they enjoyed being led by the Scouts almost as much as the Scouts enjoyed doing the leading.
