BEAVERS LOG

What a busy month!  Our Welcome Back night successfully introduced a number of new members to the Beaver group with a fun filled evening of games at the Hut.   The Putting Green on Station Approach proved it's versatility when, following a traditional round of putting, the Beavers tried footie golf, snooker golf (grassy knees!), one legged golf and where's the ball golf (eyes shut!!).  Our successful parachute jump (see elsewhere this issue) was preceded by the Parachuting Down night with everyone making a mini chute and playing games with the giant one - always a popular activity.   The month concluded with an evening hike round the woods armed with torches, treasure hunt lists and collecting bags.  We started at the picnic site car park on Holway Road and ended at the Anglian Water site on Common Lane - with a small amount of being lost in between.  What's that about Be Prepared?  Instinctive orienteering by some parent helpers thankfully got us through the muddy paths to our destination before the night drew in.

The coming month will see the enrolment of the new Beavers, some Guy Fawkes themed creative nights and a weather watch taking us past half term.

Anyone who would like to join Sheringham Beavers should contact Jayne Burghall on 825644 for membership information. Beavers is for boys and girls aged 6 to 8 - younger children can join the waiting list, older ones are eligible for Cubs or Scouts. Jayne also handles membership enquiries for all sections of Sheringham and Beeston Regis Sea Scout Group.

 

THE ROYAL AIR FORCES ASSOCIATION

At their special Luncheon on Tuesday 12th September in the middle of their WINGS WEEK Campaign the Branch had as it's Guest of Honour, Marshal of the Royal Air Force Lord Craig of Radley, GCB. OBE.

He was born in September 1929 and was married in 1955 to June Derenburg.  They have one son and one daughter.  He was commissioned into the RAF in 1951.  He became a Flying Instructor on Meteors and Hunters and CO, No.35 Squandron 1963-65.  He became Military Assistant to the Chief of the Defence Staff 1965-8.  In 1968 he was appointed Group Captain and Station CO, RAF Cranwell 1968-70.  In 1969-71 he was ADC to HM The Queen.

During the next 20 years he held all the most important posts in the RAF including Director, Plans & Operations Far East Command; OC, RAF Akrotiri (Cyprus); Assistant Chief of Air Staff (operations) Ministry of Defence 1975-78; AOC No.1 Group 1978-80; Vice Chief Air Staff 1980-82; AOC Strike Command and Commander in Chief, UK Air Forces 1982-5; Chief of Air Staff 1985-88; and finally Chief of the Defence Staff 1988-91.

He was raised to the peerage as Baron Craig of Radley, of Helhoughton in the County of Norfolk in 1991.  He became Convenor of Crossbench Peers 1999-2004 and served on 11 Select Committees during the period 2002-04.

With this record of service behind him, he made a most brilliant and amusing speech comparing the Royal Air Force when he joined the Service with its requirements today.   With terrorist activities not only in the Middle East but also in many other parts of the world the much smaller RAF was having difficulties in meeting its requirements in Iraq and Afghanistan.

His speech stimulated a number of questions about the requirements of the RAF in these new circumstances.

The Branch Chairman, Derek Shrigley, thanked Lord Craig for his most interesting speech and hoped that he would agree to being nominated as an Honorary Member of the Branch.

The Luncheon and Raffle raised some 300 for the WINGS WEEK collection.
