Beavers Man the Pumps

Swift and Kingfisher Beavers from 1st Woosehill Scout Group got the opportunity to man the pumps during their visit to Wokingham Fire Station. White Watch, led by Marcus Lewis, showed the Beavers around the building and explained how they trained, lived and worked out during their time on watch. They taught the youngsters what to do in the case of a fire and the different types of fire extinguishers. The highlight of the tour came at the end when each Beaver was able to go inside a fire engine and then take their turn using the hose to hit a target – a fireman with a cone on his head!
