Beaver Colonies make new friends in Seattle.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJanuary 2014 – contacts made in Seattle USA for 2 Beaver Colonies in Market Harborough and District.

Our own County Special Needs Advisor, Pauline Wells,  took time out in the early part of the year to visit Scouting friends across America and also took the opportunity to forge links for local Beavers Colonies in Market Harborough to have pen pals.


March 2014 Pauline spent a week in Mississippi (Long Beach) with Dorothy Neumier, Training Manager and Troop 205 Leader and spent time talking about Baden Powell and the differences in Training Programmes and  also adult awards between America and the USA.

Unfortunately the Sleepover at the Space Centre that Pauline was to attend was cancelled because of hurricane weather .


Dorothy attebded Charnwood 85 and has remained twinned with Great Glen Scouts.  There are still Scouts who correspond with our joint contacts.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

While there Pauline completed the American Leader Safety Training and have the certificate to prove it!

Pauline states “I am always made very welcome in Texas, Olympic Peninsula, Seattle and Missisippi and now Colorado whenever I go, by all Scouts and Guides, so if anyone needs contacts let me know”
