We’re trying something a little different this year. All Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, families, siblings and friends are invited to our Family Fun Day at Pinsent Campsite on Saturday 11th June from 1300-1600. Please put this date in your diary. More details to follow.
For £5 you can Name a Horse at our Night at the Races on 5th September after the Littleton and Harestock Show. This is how you do it….
Beaver, Cubs and Scouts joined forces to raise over £800 on Saturday on behalf of the Mayor’s Charities. Thanks to everyone who volunteered – we had very good attendance and it paid dividends as we are in the Hampshire Chronicle!
A limited number of #TheLongHaul t-shirts are available to people taking part in the event next weekend. Look at The Long Haul pages and see what you can do. But be quick! There’s less than a week left!
The Long Haul is our big event for this summer is one of our Scout leaders, Rob Thomson, is going to pull a Scout Trek Cart from Brownsea Island to Winchester from Saturday 12th to Sunday 13thJuly.
We aim to raise over £10,000.00 towards the Bigger & Better campaign and at a recent Scouting event Chief Scout, Bear Grylls, has wished us luck adding that he was impressed with the challenge we’ve set ourselves.
Richard Peters, who is a photographer and the dad of two of our members, has generously offered to raise money for the Bigger and Better Campaign by running a Family Portrait Session.
The Harestock Lodge Hotel has offered to host the event. You might like to consider a family portrait followed by a family lunch at the hotel.
How about a really nice photo in Scout Uniform, makes a change from the school picture.
All welcome – neighbours, grandparents, friends, those in need of a decent business profile photo etc.
Visit Richard’s web site www.rjpphotographics.com to see examples of his work.
To book your free 15 minute sitting call Richard on 07769 214609.
This year, Sparsholt Countryside Show is on the 17th May 2014. You may not be aware but 1st Winchester Scouts (Scouts, Cubs and Beavers) receive £3000 each year for managing the car parking on the day of the event but we can’t do this without your help.
Can you spare either a morning or afternoon on this day to help out? In return you will not only have helped raise a further monies towards the hut but you are also eligible for a free family pass to get you, your partner and your kids into the show (worth £28) .
If you do the whole day then the college will provide a free lunch. There is a great team spirit around this event and a chance, when not parking cars, to catch up with other parents. We will send out a specific request asking if you can sign up closer to the event, this is a chance to check your calendar and see if you can make it.
17 May – please hold the date!
