As we go to press, the details for our exciting itinerary for the Autumn term at Beavers are being finalised, so our plans are subject to change.  Needless to say we've got a varied program, jam packed with fun filled activities and events.

We start back on Tuesday 12th with a "Welcome Back" night at the Scout hut.   Grey Beaver and the team hope everyone will be returning fully rested and eager to participate.  We're pleased to be welcoming some new Beavers to the group and hope they enjoy the activities scheduled for the coming weeks.

For our outdoor activities we're planning a night hike and a golf night over the coming month.  Indoors we're intending to use the Bonfire Night theme for an evening of art & crafts.  Obviously our outdoor meetings are subject to a quick revision if the weather dictates it!

One benefit of belonging to an organised group such as Beavers means you get to go places that are sometimes "off limits" to the public - plans are afoot for a visit to the Fire Station and to the Police Station.  Watch this space!!

Anyone who would like to join Sheringham Beavers should contact Jayne Burghall on 825644 for membership information. Beavers is for boys and girls aged 6 to 8 - younger children can join the waiting list, older ones are eligible for Cubs or Scouts. Jayne also handles membership enquiries for all sections of Sheringham and Beeston Regis Sea Scout Group.

Norman Lamb, Liberal Democrat MP for North Norfolk, has delivered a petition of over 6,000 signatures of North Norfolk people supporting the Post Office Card Account (POCA) to the Department of Work and Pensions.   Government Ministers announced in July that they will continue with their plans to abolish the POCA despite public opposition.   Commenting, Norman Lamb MP said, "Thousands of people in North Norfolk are calling for Post Office Card Accounts to be retained.  As the strength of public opposition builds, I hope Government Ministers will reflect on their decision.  When the POCA was launched, the Government failed to explain that it was only intended as a temporary measure.  Now we discover that the contract setting up the POCA made it clear that this was the case and that people would be encouraged to move on to open bank accounts.  People were misled.  Furthermore, the loss of the POCA will mean a devastating loss of income for sub post offices and will eventually result in many more closing.  Instead I want to see the post office network safeguarded.  That is why I proposed a 2 billion investment fund for the post office network - a proposal accepted by the Liberal Democrat conference in March."

Four million people nationwide use Post Office Card Accounts.  The Government contract for POCA ends on 31 March 2010.
