Beavers Hop Down to the Hop Farm

16th June 2009

Beavers_1.jpgOn Saturday May 9, 17 Beavers, one Scout, one Cub, one Brownie and five adult Leaders and helpers from 1st Eynsford & Farningham attended the 'Hop Down to the Hop Farm' County Beaver fun day.

Five hundred Beaver Scouts from colonies all over Kent boarded coaches and minibuses and descended on the Hop Farm, Paddock Wood, for a day filled with fun activities, new challenges and to forge new friendships.

Our Beavers had raised much of the money for the trip by holding a sponsored pancake toss in February and their hard work was certainly worthwhile.

During the day they painted pottery, practised circus skills, played miniature golf, saw a hilarious magic show, and donned 3D glasses to chase goblins in Beavers_2.jpga psychedelic 3D house.

They saw tanks and vehicles from both World Wars, rode on a variety of fairground rides, visited a miniature nail boutique (it was amazing how many of our young boys wanted to visit that particular attraction!), and filled themselves full of sweets in the form of giant bags of candy floss and ice creams.

Probably the favourite attraction of the day was the giant bouncy pillow, where our two parent helpers, Martyn May and Matt Wintour, decided to join in the rough and tumble, much to the delight of the Beavers!

After a final attack on the talking Mr Blobby and the compulsory visit to the gift shop, we headed back to our coach, tired but having had a brilliant day out.
