Members of Jose and Leonard Beaver Scouts have gone to infinity and beyond with a space-themed sleepover.

This saw the beavers taking part in tasks for their space activity badge, which started with making big space posters and star formations.

Wearing astronaut outfits, they then went for a ‘moon walk’ around Honiton, in search of a big silver box, which turned out to be behind the Co-op store in Lace Walk. They then returned to the scout hall to sleep in their ‘space pods’, or pop-up tents.

Scouter in charge Helen Turner said: “We would like to thank Chris and Kath from Co-op for helping us.”
