Beavers from across Saffron Walden district joined Shaun the Sheep to become countryside 'aBAAsadors'.

Natural England and Aardman Studios - who created Shaun the Sheep - launched a campaign to promote the countryside code.

Shaun the Sheep became the new countryside code champion, using the tagline 'respect, protect, enjoy' to encourage people to value nature.


Around 40 Beavers and their leaders came together on Sunday, October 15 to find out how they could protect Shaun and the flock.

While enjoying a hike around Sewards End, the Beavers completed a countryside code-related quiz and made sure they put the code into practice.

The code encourages people to say hello, keep their dogs under control, care for nature and take their litter home.
