THE DAMBOREE PASSPORT – so many possible badge requirements met

Firstly a credit to Angela Haynes, who has inspired us to get the crayons out, and do a branded passport for Beavers. Thanks Angela, so please when you download it, remember to thank Angela on our FaceBook Group and Page.

It’s editable in Microsoft Word, however other office packages are available but may require more fiddling.
