NANTWICH kids can get involved with Scouting after a new Beavers and Cubs colony opened in the town due to popular demand.

Based at Millfields Primary School the 7th South West Cheshire Nantwich Millfields Beavers and Cubs colony have opened their doors to over 25 enthusiastic children.

The new colony was formed due to the large waiting list at both the Nantwich and Stapeley groups, with approximately 70 to 80 children on their combined waiting lists, many of whom will possibly not be able to join their chosen section or group.

South West Cheshire District Commissioner Ian Sowerby approached Millfields Primary School as a suitable venue in a prime location.

He said: “It is a great credit to the parents of Millfields Primary School who have volunteered to be leaders and helpers so that children can enjoy the Scouting experience and learn new life skills whilst enjoying themselves.”

Beaver leader Cheryl Hamlyn added: “For many of us this is the first time we have been involved in the Scouting organisation and so far it has been an absolute joy.

“We have an amazing group of young children and have fun at every session. Of course the added bonus is by becoming leaders we have ensured places for our own children.”
