We have a new GSL – but we still need more help!

We are delighted to announce that Mike Wilson is our new Group Scout Leader (GSL)! Mike is a very experienced Scout leader who has been in charge of the Greeks (Thursday evening scouts) for many years. Mark Weston-Smith has now taken over as the new leader of the Greeks, but that means we need another new leader to help on Thursday evenings. If you’d like to help, or to find out a bit more about what would be involved, please contact Dave Kesby, Mike or Mark.

We’re also very pleased to say that Gill Bowyer is now our Group Admin Assistant, a new role created to assist the GSL and to take control of important administrative tasks including DBS processing. But we are also still looking for a new Assistant GSL to help both Mike and Gill with their duties. Again, if you’re interested, please do get in touch.

Scouts support Boaz Project Family Fun Day

On Saturday 30th September 1st Winchester Scouts travelled to the Boaz Project Hampshire to help with the Billy Boaz Family Fun Day. We helped to set up stalls and to serve refreshments. We were also asked to run an outdoor garden games section, which included chess, archery and a more unusual game called Cub.

It was great fun and lovely to see all the participants taking part in the sponsored walk and run. We were all given a medal at the end of the day as a thank-you for our help.
