Outreach Event for the North Runcton Beaver Group
Friday 02 October
Well our first outreach event of the new season got us off to a flying start. We were invited to do a talk and observation evening for the children of North Runcton Beaver Scout Group as they were having a sleepover at the village hall. John entertained them with one of his wonderful talks while Alan and I got on with setting up our scopes. We were very fortunate with the weather, it was crystal clear skies overhead. Good old Ursa Major was in full glory and many of our old favourites were shining down on us in all their splendour.
When the little ones came out to join us their enthusiasm was very loud!!! John, Alan and myself were kept very busy showing them as much as we could. I think the adults were just as keen as the children. But as usual with children, all interest in the stars above soon disappeared when the laser pens came out, it was all we could do to keep hold of them!! But it was a good start and we all enjoyed ourselves. That’s it for this one, but we are off to Titchwell on Wednesday evening so I will report back on that event later. Wishing you all clear skies!!
