Sign-up to our Beavers waiting list!

Date: 11th Feb 2022 Author: Matthew Ruddle

Calling all parents and carers of pre-schoolers and toddlers!


Now is the time to sign up your young children and add them to our waiting list to give them the opportunity to join Beavers when they reach their sixth birthday.

I signed up my two sons to the waiting list when they were four years old and eighteen months old, so that by the time they were six they were able to start Beavers. Adding their names to the waiting list does not mean they are obligated to join, but it does give you the option and they’ll have more chance of securing a place than if you wait until they are older.


We welcome girls and boys from Long Hanborough, Church Hanborough and Freeland as well as other nearby areas. As the community grows the demand for places will be greater, so now is the time to place your child on the waiting list.


Joining Beavers is a fantastic way for your child to learn new skills, to socialise with children from different schools and villages, to try new things and, most importantly, to have fun!

Children stay in Beavers from age six until age eight, and many of them progress up through the ranks to become Cubs, then Scouts and eventually Explorers, but there is no obligation to do so.


To add your child to our waiting list, please send an email to: with your child’s name, address, date of birth and a contact telephone number. Or fill out the form on our website:


Beavers is a wonderful opportunity for your child so don’t let them miss out!

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
