255th Beavers visited Greville Smyth Park on a sunny Monday evening last week, where they had a chance to try their hand at three British traditions.

First, they had a go at welly wanging, from Yorkshire. The challenge was to see who could throw a Wellington boot the furthest. Congratulations to Zach, who was the clear winner.

Second, the Beavers had a chance to try caber tossing, from the Scottish Highland Games. It may not have been a full-sized caber, but some of the Beavers showed great technique. The winner was Morgan, by a country mile.

Finally, and most hysterically, the Beavers had a go at our local tradition of cheese rolling, from Gloucestershire. After practising individually with Babybels, the Beavers all ran together. Well done to Zachary for catching the big cheese!

As well as trying several fun new activities, the Beavers worked towards their old Global Challenge or new My World Challenge. Following the Sleepover and other recent activities, there will be a lot of badges to hand out on Monday!

Coming soon: A gallery of the photos from the Sleepover, once we have got everything together.
