Beavers Meet Santa
7 January 2017


Beavers from Settle and Ingleton were the first visitors of the season to meet Santa in his grotto at Ingleborough Cave near Clapham last month.

Gemma Tyrie, the newly appointed District Beaver Scout Leader, said, “There was a lovely mix of Settle and Ingleton Beavers and they all got on well. We made it to the entrance in plenty of time for a picnic and then enjoyed a tour of the caves.

 Our tour guides were elves who told us about the history of the caves and how goblins and giants had been banned from the caverns. Beavers talked to Santa and chose a gift before making their way back out. Both Colonies are really enjoying getting together so we will definitely be organising more joint District events in 2017.
