The Beaver Bafta is awarded to Beaver Colony’s across the County who have had a large growth in
members over the past 5 years. There were 29 Colony’s across the County who were awarded a
Bafta, and three of them were our very own Mountsorrell, Woodhouse Eaves and Anstey.
This is a great achievement for the District as it shows that there are lots of young people
wanting to join in with the adventure of Scouting, and that the Leaders in the District are providing
a fantastic programme for the young people. Mandy, Leader at Anstey told us that with more
people taking part in community events “like the gala and the duck race things, you end up with
Have you ever wondered what some of the great programme ideas Beaver Leaders have come up
with to keep the young people flooding in with excitement? Well when Woodhouse Eaves were
awarded their Bafta, they were at the Leicester Lions Speed Way working on their cycling skills
which all of the Beavers enjoyed, especially Ethan who arrived at the start of the night with his
stabilisers on, and through determination, effort and support from his Leaders, he found the
courage to take off his stabilisers to ride on his own for the very first time! What an incredible
achievement, and when asked what he’s going to do when he gets home he said “I’m going to tell
my mum and dad and they will be very proud of me.”
Well done to the three Colony’s for all your hard work and dedication in receiving a Beaver Bafta!
