Beavers try Indian Food!

The Beaver Scouts had a great international experience! The Colony and their Leaders went along to the 'Eastern Spice' Restaurant and sampled poppadums, korma curry and all the trimmings. Hosted by the attentive staff at the restaurant, the Young People had a taste of a new cuisine - and all agreed it was 'great'! NEWS FLASH !! But it was a FIRST for the Beavers - new Beavers Scouts were invested at the restaurant - maybe the first-ever at an Indian Restaurant!!
