Beavers: Mondays 17.00 – 18.30 at Shrewsbury House, Shooters Hill
Beavers are young people usually aged between six and eight years old.
They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.
Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday.
They can move to the next Section, Cub Scouts, between seven years and six months and eight years six months.
With a varied program and lots of activities, Beaver scouts will make friends, play games, try new things such as cooking and craft making, all providing ample opportunity to let off steam and have lots of fun! Beaver scouts will also work towards many of the badges and awards available to them, ranging from badges for scientific experiments to badges for caring for an animal.

The Shrewsbury Park Resident’s Association has been in existence at the Shrewsbury Park Estate, Shooters Hill, since the Estate was first built in 1935. The Residents’ Association evolved throughout the thirties and the war years, and continues to go from strength to strength today, run by residents of the Shrewsbury Park Estate, keen to preserve the character of the Estate and to sustain the sense of belonging to something unique.
I feel privileged to Chair such an organisation, and with the support and dedication of the Association Committee, will continue to serve the residents of the Shrewsbury Park Estate.
The group was formed in 1976 to promote the understanding of local history in the Shooters Hill area, to research and physically investigate all aspects that made the Hill what it is today. The group supports the work of other local organisations, such as the Woodlands Farm Trust and the Severndroog Castle Building Preservation Trust.
The group is formed of ordinary local people from all walks of life with an interest in the local area, its history and its preservation
