Tickets are now available for our next exciting fundraising event, the Littleton Show After Party, to be held in the marquee at the Littleton Show, on the evening of Saturday September 7th, from 7.45pm to midnight. Tickets are £15 each, with discounts for early bird table bookings for eight to ten people available until the end of July. We’ll have welcome drinks, dinner, entertainment, an auction, raffle and a cash bar.
We need to raise extra funds this year, because sadly Little 1s, our resident pre-school at 1st Place, will be closing at the end of the summer term. So please do come along, and bring your friends for a great night out, while helping to raise the funds needed to keep Winchester’s most successful scout group in good financial health!
Due to a clash with the Hat Fair we have decided not to run our planned Family Fun Day and AGM on July 6th. The AGM will now be held at another social event on September 28th – more details will follow soon.
We’re also still looking for a new chair to replace Dave Kesby, who will now stay in post until the rearranged AGM in September. If you are interested in finding out more about this incredibly rewarding role, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
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.
An innovative project by 1st Winchester won 3rd place in the national Scouting for All awards last weekend at Warwick University. See the video below to see what the Scouting Plus project is all about.
