Collection of books for Bookbridge – Monday 2nd October 2017

Alan Hands, Strategy and Change Manager (Community Impact) at the Scout Association and 4 Explorer Scouts (Young Leaders) from the Isle of Dogs, East London,  joined us this evening to collect books that had been donated by parents from the 11th Southgate.  Alan and the Explorers had visited Mongolia in the summer and Alan taught the Beavers a game that they had played in Mongolia.

                      

The Beavers found out about Bookbridge and the visit to Mongolia in summer 2017.  Bookbridge is a Scout inspired social enterprise with  expertise in education that runs 20 community-based learning centres across Cambodia, Mongolia and Sri Lanka to improve job and life  chances of many thousands of young people.  These centres are supported by the local Scouts and are at the heart of the community.

               

             

Alan told the Beaver parents about Bookbridge at the end of the meeting and thanked them for the children’s books they had donated.

RESULTS OF SUNFLOWER COMPETITION  September 2016

Our community link with Christchurch Lodge continues to develop. In May the Beavers planted sunflower seeds and took them home to look after until they had germinated and grown to be tall enough to be planted out in the garden of Christchurch Lodge. Residents then looked after the plants during the summer so that the sunflowers could be entered into a competition with other Riverside Retirement homes in the area.  We have just found out the results. Christchurch Lodge came 2nd with their tallest sunflower, which was grown by Bethia. It measures 2.6m.
