Happy 35th* Anniversary, Beavers 13 Apr 2021 (1st Eynsham Beaver Scouts) It's our 35th anniversary. Or is it our 40th?

Beavers became officially part of The Scout Association and the World Scout Organisation on 1 April 1986. So we're 35 this year...

...but wait...

All that becoming official business followed a few years of what might nowadays be called a 'soft launch'. Beaver Scouts were introduced across the UK in 1982, and there were various unofficial Beavers-like outgrowths of the Scouting Movement in some parts of the UK before then.

The Eynsham Scouts Archive records that "Carol Messenger was the Beaver Leader from 1981 - 1992". So it looks like we were quickly onto this new opportunity to offer Scouting to children 6-8 years old.

So happy 40th Anniversary Eynsham Beavers...unless we're even older than that....
