Philpott Beaver Colony Queens Diamond Jubilee Party 31st May 2012
The 5th Dartford Scout Group’s Philpott Beavers enjoyed a traditional party on Thursday 31st May to celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee and luckily for us ‘Before the rains came’. 21 Beavers all dressed in red, white and blue arrived and joined in the games of musical chairs, balloon races and musical bumps. At 4.45 we stopped the games picked up our crowns and went outside for a lovely tea-party. Sandwiches, crisps, sausages, festive cakes all washed down with a bottle of pop. We raised our glasses (paper cups) to the Queen and finished with all invested members renewing their Beaver Promise.
As it was Joey Junior’s (Ashley) birthday on Sunday we replaced his crown with the birthday hat and sang to him much to his embarrassment .
All in all a jolly good time was had by all.
