Beaver Scouts past and present gathered in the Scout Hut at Mundesley to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the day, 30 years ago, when Beavers became part of the scouting movement.

Anna Hollis, Beaver Scout Leader of 1st Mundesley Air Scout Group, organised a disco party to bring together all those who are part of the Beaver Scouting Group as well as former members of all ages.

She said: 'I wanted to do something to mark the 30th birthday on the actual day Beavers became part of the scouting movement. We have a strong group of 18 Beavers presently and the interest to join is growing fast, which means we desperately need more volunteers.

'None of this could happen without the help of parents and volunteer rotas so we always encourage parents, family and friends to join in the fun and help my section Assistant Emily Lee.'

The Beavers meet on a regular basis and take part in various activities as well as outings.

Guests at the party were Mundesley Club Leader, Jamie Coleman and Beaver Area District Commissioner, Alison Smith, as well as Beavers' families and friends.

Alison said: 'The Beaver Section, since starting 30 years ago, has gone from strength to strength, offering a fantastic opportunity for young people and setting them on a path in Scouting that will give them great experiences and lifelong learning skills. Every person is different but being part of the Scout Association they all share common values'.
