Badge positions for uniforms

Posted on October 20th, 2016 by admin

Badges are the symbol of achievement whether it’s personal development, skills and abilities or length of involvement within Scouting. They are all equally important to the member whether they be old or young, it’s a symbol of their hard work and dedication.

They have a special importance to those that receive them. We ask you to please help them to sow them on to their uniforms and let them be proud of their achievements. Their fellow group members will be looking to see what each other have on their uniforms, it’s a pride thing that every one of them works hard towards gaining their appropriate badges.

We appreciate it’s confusing all the different badges and their position on the uniform. So to help you understand the positioning of badges we’ve put together this page to help.

Australian Joeys with a 3rd Thetford Beaver

Posted on July 24th, 2016 by admin

One of our Beavers leaders managed to meet up with some Australian groups while over there on holiday. They are staying in touch and here’s some of the correspondences we’re able to share.

Communication from Baldivis Joeys

Hi Louise (Lioness),

I’m so sorry it’s taken me so long to get back to you, my daughter fell ill and needed to be in hospital, then I fell ill so I haven’t been up to doing much, were all good now and back to work, school, scouts etc.

I’m so glad you enjoyed yourself; my Joeys loved having you visit, and have been showing the new Joeys all the badges and the Beaver Teddy. We now have 10 invested Joeys and 2 more awaiting investiture.

We have a package to send you with a Joey, badges, scarf and some pictures, we are out of the hall this week due to a camp at Manjedal activities centre in Jarrahdale, this is a campsite owned by scouts WA.

I hope to keep regular contact with you and your Colony of Beaver Scouts.

Kind Regards

Melissa McCabe (KANGA)


Communication from Kwinana Joeys

Hi Louise,

I hope you and your family are well 🙂

Sorry it has been so long for me to get back in touch with you! I just thought I’d give you a little update on our little Beavers adventures with us.

A few weeks ago we went on a Joey Cub Day outing to the Perth Zoo. Beaver saw many animals including some dinosaurs!

We also went on a buddy outing with another Joey Mob to a playground, which formed part of our Buddy Badge. Beaver had a great time!

I have included a couple of photos, but will try and work out how to create a link so I can send you them all. Or maybe we could create a private Facebook group? Either way, I will be sure to get you all the photos so your Beaver Scouts can be kept up to date with Beavers adventures!

Please let me know what you would like me to do.

Stay safe and talk soon,

Bilby (Helen)

Badge night – April 2016

Another amazing badge night for 3rd Thetford scouts. Over 400 badges awarded for our groups hard work.
A credit to scouting in Thetford that we have approx 100 children working towards these badges on a weekly basis. It’s a credit to their hard work and that of the many leaders and volunteers.

Photos now available to signed up members 🙂
