We will be hosting our customary 1st Hinchley Wood Scouts open day on Saturday 4th September 2021 at 4pm. Despite the successes of out virtual event last year, we are keen to catch-up with people face-to-face so will be holding our usual event at the Hut, albeit with some changes to make people feel comfortable.
This includes holding the event outside under the marquee with plenty of sanitiser and open air. There will be activities & games for all – not just Beavers, Cubs & Scouts but siblings and potential members too.
We are always looking out for people to help out with the running of 1st Hinchley Wood scout group as we rely solely on volunteers to be successful! The help we need comes in various shapes and sizes – there will be an opportunity to suit everyone!
At the minute, we are looking for two very different roles to be filled. Given these roles will be more than an hour here and there, should you be willing to take on one of these, in recognition of your commitment, your child will jump to the top of the waiting list, to start in the group as soon as possible!
Should neither of these roles work for you, but you feel able to contribute in other ways then please do not hesitate to get in touch. For example we are continuing to look to expand the leadership team for Beavers – our youngest group of children.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Emma Wilson at .
Should this not be for you, then do please mention to others who may be interested in getting experience such as this.
1st Hinchley Wood scout group were out in force at the St George’s Day Parade on 27 April. The occasion was blessed with a fine breezy afternoon which helped to make it all the more enjoyable.
The Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Explorers carried and escorted flags, read Laws, prayers and helped with the collection, supported of course by the Leaders & Assistants. Thanks to the parents that acted as road stewards and to the Group Members & parents who attended the Parade.
After the parade, the group welcomed a new smaller minibus – the fruits of hard work by many fundraisers – and said ‘farewell’ to the old blue minibus, after 27 years faithful service with 1st Hinchley Wood.
The old bus has been donated and is destined for new adventures in Zimbabwe with a charity there, thanks to Beaver leader Ian Broderick for the idea and the contact with Billy and Zimbabwe.
