The Tooth Fairy Vists 2nd Onchan Thursday Beavers

2nd Onchan Thursday Beavers had a visit from the Dentist! Tooth Fairy Wilson spoke to the Beavers about Sugar Bugs and the importance of brushing your teeth properly. The Beavers were each given a mask, gloves and mirror and had a great time looking at people’s teeth. I wonder if any of our Beavers will go on to become a Dentist?

The Beavers also found out that not all countries have a Tooth Fairy that brings money in exchange for a tooth. In some countries children leave their tooth in a slipper and receive a gift. Our thanks go to Tooth Fairy Wilson for a fun and informative evening.

New GSL at 1st Malew Scout Group

Following a leaders meeting on Monday evening I am pleased to appoint Leanne Urwin as the new Group Scout Leader of 1st Malew Scout Group.

Leanne is a Cub Scout Leader as well as Band Master and comes from a scouting family with her dad being a former GSL himself.

I am sure every leader will congratulate, offer support and wish her well.

Good luck Leanne
