Achievement and Awards

We like to celebrate all kinds of success. One of the nice things about a website is that we can easily add lots of records and continue those celebrations.

Still, He is always enthusiastic about new activities, ready to share thoughtful answers, kind to other Beavers in the colony and helpful to the Leaders.  Congratulations, Rupert.

Well done Ethan!

    Ben is always very polite and will get on with any task that is set him, he is a great team player and is happy to help out with anyone who needs a helping hand. It has been a pleasure having Ben in our group and we are going to miss him when he moves up to Cubs after the summer holidays.

  • 2017 – George Peddar

    George has really been a great child to have in beavers, he always has a smile on his face and ready to start any activity coming. At camp, he was really nervous about coming but as soon as he saw everything around him he got really excited and couldn’t wait for the camp to begin. He is always very polite and a very helpful child, we will miss him when he moves up to cubs, but I hope that he will enjoy himself and continue to grow in his scouting life.

Riverbank Beavers

This colony opened in 2013

While this beaver has only been a member for 1 year, he has already achieved so much, having earned 1 challenge award and 10 activity badges, and has made great progress towards his Bronze Chief Scouts Award.
This beaver always puts his all into any activity we do - from Art to Ziplining, and even if he is feeling nervous will always give his best and challenge himself.
While he rarely likes to be in the limelight, he surprised the leaders by volunteering to be a lodge leader - the only member to do so.
However, in this role, he has set a great example to both his own lodge and others with his quiet and sensible demeanour and is often found helping others complete a project.
  • 2022 - Jack Marsh

  • 2021 - Samuel Onions

Always polite, joins in and most importanylu has fun and plays well.

  • 2020 - Not Presented

  • 2019 - Holly Watson

  • 2018 – Jacob Edwards

    It’s not all about being the bravest or the strongest.
    It’s not always about winning.
    It’s not about being the most competitive or the loudest.
    It’s about building confidence, overcoming shyness, trying new things out of your comfort zone and making new friends.
    This is exactly what this Beaver has done.
    He is one of the quietest, the least competitive but he has overcome shyness, built confidence, tried new things become braver and chattier!
    This Beaver is definitely a winner in our eyes and we are delighted to award Jacob Edwards the Riverbank Beaver of the Year 2018.

  • 2017 – Sofia Palumbo

    This little lady gets stuck into everything, gives anything a go. Is always polite and incredibly helpful and is happy to volunteer for the clearing up duties where most will avoid like the plague!

  • 2016 – Martha Pearce

    She will not let anything stop her, always willing to get stuck in with the activities involved, always has a smile on her face and has recently started to open up a bit more and come out of her shell in meetings.

  • 2015 – Callum Lomas

    He is the very essence of what a Beaver should be. Always kind and helpful, throws himself into every task and does his best with a smile on his face. He has taken on the role of lodge leader and leads by example in true Scouting style.

  • 2014 – Thomas Cort

In less than a year, James has completed most of the Challenge Badges, and will soon have completed his Bronze Award.

Waingunga Cubs

This pack opened in 2013
  • 2022 - Riley Randall

Riley always comes to each week with so much energy and enthusiasm. He is polite to all members of the pack, caring towards new members and always so keen to teach other group members when they need help. Riley is a sixer, he sets example behaviour to those within his group, and pack. In addition, Riley always attends meets outside of Tuesday evenings and recently has attended St George's Day and the Calke Abbey Walk, showing a very keen interest in Cubs and working towards his Silver award before moving up to Scouts in September.

  • 2021 - Benjamin Robbins
This member has been an active part of 4th Ashby for a few years he started at Beavers and will shortly be moving on to Scouts, where we at Waingunga hope he will continue to flourish. 
During his time at Waingunga he has shown wonderful life skills  and proved to be a very active and popular member of the pack with both leaders and peers.
He is always engaged, he listens, helps other Cubs, is kind, polite and always try’s his hardest.
He is the first to be standing ready to start the lesson and he will be the first to help other younger Cubs when they are struggling.
That’s not to say he finds everything easy over the weeks he has struggled with certain tasks but will ask for help and remain resilient.
He knows his strengths and is happy to accept help when needed. This Cub has also thought of ways of benefiting the whole group and it was him who approached the leaders and asked if we could do a Cub of the week certificate. He not only suggested the idea but took responsibility each week turning up with another certificate for us to present.
As you move on Benjamin Robbins to Scouts we at Waingunga will miss you and hope you continue to enjoy your scouting journey.
  • 2020 - Not Presented
  • 2019 - Leon Bealing

This Cub has had an impressive attendance record this year. He shows up to the weekly meeting always full of enthusiasm. He is kind to his fellow Cubs and often encourages other members when they are reluctant or nervous. I remember him saying to one Cub “You always have to try and give something a go. You won’t know if you like it or not if you don’t try”. Another occasion he showed empathy for a Cub who was scared of the dark on a night hike and stayed with his friend and supported him.

He is polite and respectful to all. He attended Twycross, Fox Coverts this year as well as canoeing and sailing and did all activities with his usual infectious enthusiasm.
What this boy doesn’t know about dinosaurs isn’t worth knowing and he taught the leaders a few facts while on camp.
All the leaders from Waingunga Cubs believe Leon Bealing should be the Cub of the Year.
  • 2018 - Sam Weatherill
Sam is always willing to participate, has a great attitude and is always well turned out.  Not only that, but he shows great leadership potential with his kind nature towards his fellow Cubs.
  • 2017 - Joshua Pearce
Joshua has been nominated again as he continues to be a first-class cub scout.  He takes part with enthusiasm and good cheer
  • 2016 - Joshua Pearce
Joshua who was invested into Waingunga whilst on a Victorian cakewalk has consistently shown scouting values and is developing good leadership skills. He always puts maximum effort into activities, is amongst the first to pitch into help and is often among the last to leave making sure that equipment is put away. Although we have a fantastic cub pack and all deserve recognition, The Waingunga team have all put Joshua Pearce forward for this award and all wholeheartedly believe he deserves the Waingunga cub of the year award.
  • 2015 - Patrick Boxall
I was able to rely on Patrick being a team captain and to help to organise others with consistent great behaviour.
  • 2014 - Abigail Atherton
Abigail has always been very dedicated to Cubs, taking part in all Cub pack meetings as well as all other activities offered to the Cubs. Her attendance, manners and lovely personality are outstanding and she is a great asset to Waingunga cubs. Abigail is a very determined and committed young girl who puts 100% into everything she does not just at Cubs but at home and school as well
  • 2013 - Harry Hart
