Beavers Induction In Ammanford
Following a break of nearly 7 years a Beaver Scout colony has been re-established at Ammanford Scout Group. Beavers is the first part of the scouting family and is for boys and girls of between 6 and 8 years old. The youngsters attended taster sessions held at the Scout Hall in Manor Road last summer (2008) following presentations made at schools in Ammanford by Val Cole, Area Development Commissioner.

Following the enthusiasm of the new Beavers a number of parents volunteered to run the colony with the support of Val Cole and the other leaders at Ammanford Scout Group.

Since their formation the Beavers have taken part in a big fun day out in Pembrey Country Park, have had a Cowboy and Indian party and have all worked for and gained their Safety Badge. They are looking forward to their Firework Party with the Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, and their Sleepover Party later in the year.

The Beavers are pictured (above right) holding their certificates just after their investiture at the Scout Hall, which was done in front of parents, grandparents and guests and they intend to live up to the Beaver motto of "Fun and Friends".
