BEAVER Scouts from throughout West Wiltshire have staged a belated New Year party in Melksham.

The annual event was staged at Spencers Sports & Social Club and was attended by 82 Beavers from six groups in the Wiltshire West District.

Traditional refreshments included Jelly and Ice cream along with cake.

Entertainment was provided by local performer ‘Mad Pete’ including circus skills, balloon modelling and magic tricks.

All the Scouts left happily with their own balloon model.
