Helen added: “He tries really hard at everything the cubs do and gives it his best shot.

“He has a really good sense of humour and will do his best to help other cubs who may need a helping hand without even being asked. He is a brilliant youngster in our group and always makes us smile.”

Beavers Hamish Terry, Charlie Wheeler and Alfie Gosling, of Jose Colony, were presented with their bronze award certificates and badges, as were Jason Cadman, Hannah Van Os De Man, William Norries and Evan Lowman, of Leonard Colony.

Helen said: “This is the highest award that a beaver can achieve. They have to complete challenges and activity badges to receive the bronze award and badge. A big congratulations to them for achieving this, as it takes well over a year to complete.”
