CRE8 Week Two : Community activities for Beavers and Cubs

We have made it to week two and we hope that you are keeping well and able to carry on with your favourite scouting activities. 

This week we will be focusing on Community and what community means to you. As we cannot be out in the community as much as we hoped we can still communicate and let someone know we are there or thinking of them.  

Main Challenge:

We are all part of a community, with family, friends, and neighbours being a part of our daily lives. Staying connected to these communities is important and whilst we cannot meet face-to-face, we can still stay connected through various methods of messaging.

To take an active part in your community, how about writing a letter, or postcard to your neighbour, friend or local care home to spread happiness, using the scouting values of Integrity, Respect, Care, Belief and Co-operation.

Share your messages with us to spread happiness further to the rest of Merseyside and beyond!

Supporting the Scouts "Great Indoors' campaign we have these amazing activities to share with you.
