Squirrels opens in Countesthorpe!

On 21st September, we were thrilled to open our doors to Squirrels for the first time! Our new Section for 4 and 5 year olds began with a bang, as the confetti fell over our first ever Squirrel Scouts, accompanied by their leaders, and local Councillors who had joined us for the first meeting. Everyone had a great time, playing some getting to know you games, decorating some of the things we will be using in Squirrel meetings – and of course, celebrating with cake! We’re really excited to be opening this opportunity to more young people over the coming months and we have lots of exciting activities planned – including a trip to Curve to watch ‘The Owl who came to Christmas’, woodland walks and bread making!

A huge thankyou to all of the volunteers who have worked so hard over the last few months to make this new Section possible, making adjustments at the hut, registering our new Squirrels and planning their programme – looking forward to Squirrels being a big part of our events and activities for many years to come!
