Police Visit

A police van, blue flashing lights and riot gear were all in evidence at the 1st Woosehill Scout Hut one Tuesday and Wednesday evening in October and luckily, although their were plenty of suspicious characters (Beavers) there, no arrests were made! PC Carter and PCSO Baughn, from Thames Valley Police, visited Swift and Kingfisher Beavers to tell them all about their local police force and show them the equipment they use. Beavers were able to experience what it is like to be handcuffed, listen to message on the radio, feel how heavy a riot helmet is to wear and even sit in the driving seat of the police van and hear the sirens going off! The officers also took a very lively question and answer session and urged all the youngsters to say hello to them when they saw them on the beat.
