Thanks to everyone who has supported any of our fundraising efforts over the past few years, especially our parent reps, we have now raised enough money to purchase a new minibus for our Scout Group.
Hopefully you have had the chance to see our new minibus out and about already. Keep your eyes out for a shiny silver minibus around Hinchley Wood.
We are currently saving up for:
- A new marquee for the ever expanding number of people who go camping
- New archery equipment as we now have fully trained leaders
- New lightweight tents for our Explorers to use at camp
1st Hinchley Wood remain the most successful Scout Group in Esher District, winning both the best Troop and Best Explorer Unit in Esher District in 2013.
Our Scouts have now won the Top Troop Trophy for a record equaling 4 years in a row. With a number of triumphs already in 2014’s competition they are hoping to set a new record of 5 successive years as Esher’s best Scout Troop.
- District Scouting Skills & First Aid Competition
An excellent beginning to 2015 with our Scouts starting as they mean to continue, taking 1st place against all the rest of Esher District.
- Scout District Night Hike – 18th October 2014
Another 1st for 1st Hinchley Wood – Congratulations to our Scouts for not only winning the District Night Hike but also taking 2nd place too.
- Scout District Cooking Competition – 5th October
We were just squeezed into 2nd place this time, however there was nothing in it. Think the judges just felt it was time for someone else to win! Well done cooks.
- Scout Shooting Competition –
With some keen marksmen and having had plenty of practice in our CP Centre our Scouts took 1st place in this new competition.
