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.

Sea Scout Group.

PETITION TO RETAIN POST OFFICE CARD ACCOUNT
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.
Norman Lamb continues to collect petition signachures
calling for the POCA to be retained.
