A CLEVEDON scout group, which had to fold because of a lack of leaders, has re-opened.The 2nd Clevedon Scouts Beaver Colony had to close several years ago because volunteers to run the group could no longer be found. But now after new helpers came forward, the pack has re-opened, complete with 19 new members.The new Beaver Scouts, aged between six and eight-years-old, were invested infront of friends and family in a special ceremony in which they promised to 'do their best, to be kind and helpful and to love God''Beaver Scout leader Debra Williams said: "We are delighted that we've been able to re-open the Beaver Colony at 2nd Clevedon Scouts as it means we can once again offer fun, friendship and adventure for the youngest members of our scouting family in Clevedon. The whole colony is now looking forward to the scouting centenary celebrations in 2007 and all the new badges, games and activities it will bring."These 19 young Beaver Scouts are taking the first steps on a journey of challenge and adventure which I hope will continue through the various sections of the scout movement and offer them skills and experiences which they will remember and fall back on for a long time to come."As with all scout groups, 2nd Clevedon relies on adult support in order to offer a range of fun and activities for young members.
