These Beaver Scouts have certainly bounced back.

Two years ago, the colony for the 1st Thornton Cleveleys Scout Group was forced to close due to a lack of leaders.

But the group has re-formed and now 20 boys and girls aged six to eight-years-old are meeting every week to join scouting adventures.

Jenny Warne, Beaver Scout Leader, said: “I really enjoy Beavers.

“It doesn’t take too much of my time – we have a great team here with another four Assistant Beaver Leaders and also two helpers.

“Between us we have a great balance of different skills. It helped building the colony up from scratch and being involved right from the beginning.”

Since the official opening last Easter the Beaver Scouts have achieved their healthy eating badge and are looking forward to enjoying a visit from Fleetwood firefighters.

Ellie Matthews, five, said: “I like Beavers. I like playing about and I like the leaders.”

Jack Jordan, six-years old, said: “Our leaders are really nice.”

And Sam Cross, six, said: “I made a lot of friends here.”
