The 12th Andover (West) Beavers have received a very exciting letter! 

In March, the Beavers took part in a district activity day.  One of the activities that day was to make a card for the Queen to celebrate her jubilee.  The cards all looked amazing and had lovely messages inside for Her Majesty and so we posted them off to Buckingham Palace. 

The Beavers were so pleased this week when we showed them a letter that we had received from Buckingham Palace thanking them all for their cards. The contents of the letter was as follows: – 

To:  The 12th Andover (West) Beavers 

The Queen wishes me to write and thank you for the colourful cards which you sent to Her Majesty on the occasion of her platinum jubilee. The Queen was glad to hear from you and, although unable to reply to you personally, Her Majesty greatly appreciated the nice things you said. 

I am to thank you again for your messages of good wishes to The Queen in this, her Platinum Jubilee year. 

Signed by Mary Morrison (Lady-in-Waiting) 

A copy of the letter and enclosed leaflet can be seen in the hut on the Beavers notice board.
