Help needed car parking at the Littleton Show (Sept 1st)

Each year we run the car park stewarding at the Littleton Show, at the end of the summer holidays, in return for a very useful donation to the 1st Winchester. We don’t need as many volunteers as we do for the Sparsholt Countryside Day, but we do need enough people to do the job and that can be tricky, because some people tend to be away during that last week of the holidays. So, if you are around and can spare a little bit of time to help, please do put Saturday September 1st into your diary. Many thanks!

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.

Bowling Cancelled 21st Oct

Unfortunately the bowling for Tues 21st Oct has had to be cancelled.  We didn’t manage to get enough adults to reach the minimum required to be safe.  See you all after half-term when we’ll be in the new building!
