Beavers sleepover in Gartmore

Last weekend the Beavers spent the night sleeping over in the new village hall at Gartmore. We arrived for lunch on Saturday and immediately went to explore the forest. We did a four and a half mile walk, past the campsite and on to the pebbly beach by the river.

After a well earned rest back at the hall, and a quick play at the park, we had our dinner and then went for another walk! 

Not another four and a half miles though, we went in search of bats. We learnt how to use the bat detector and set off to Gartmore House. At first we didn't find any but then they started coming out and we could hear them squeaking on the bat detector.  

Back at the hall, and after a mug of hot chocolate (with mini-marchmallows), it was time for bed...although not sleep...

The next day we were very very tired and just managed a quick stroll to a nearby wood to collect sticks to make walking sticks/swords/guns.
