Sensory Garden Opening

admin : June 30, 2018 14:27 : Beavers, Cubs, Latest News, Leaders, Scouts, Young Leaders

Willaston Scouts’ dementia-friendly sensory garden was formally opened this afternoon.

At the start of 2016, as part of A Million Hands, our beavers, cubs and scouts chose to support Alzheimer’s Society by creating a sensory garden in the grounds of our scout HQ. Over the last two years, each section has contributed to the development of this tranquil space, preparing the ground, erecting and painting fences (and a shed), planting, laying a pathway, weeding and watering.

As well as the hard work in the garden, beavers, cubs and scouts have learned about dementia and memory. A memory wall, with everyone’s favourite scouting memory will be on display to share with the community.

We hope the garden will be used by members of the community to make and share memories.

Cheshire Hike 2018

Jackie Hulme : April 18, 2018 20:51 : Latest News, Scouts

We would like to congratulate our Cheshire Hikers this year, who completed the challenge this weekend just gone.

Gladys, Bertie, James, Seth, Issac, Nathan, Ryan, Greta and Roxanne all successfully navigated their way in teams of two across Cheshire, carrying  everything that they needed for a two day expedition. It is a fantastic achievement (second time for Gladys and Nathan!) and we all feel a huge pride in them – all that training paid off! It takes great courage, especially the first time and Scouts from other groups admitted to me at Junior Base Camp, ‘this is really scary… when you are somewhere that you’ve never been before with just a map and a compass’! From the perspective of a child, who has never walked out alone before, carrying an 11kg backpack and walking up to 40km, it does indeed take great courage. That’s what Scouting can do and I recommend the Cheshire Hike to you all!

Special mention to Willaston based Explorer Scouts, Craig and James who also cut a blazing trail in the senior section. We also had one team that couldn’t make it due to poorliness – there’s always next year!!

Thank you to Leader Graham Shaw for sterling work in organisation and to all of the leaders (and me -ho ho) who both supported the training and the actual event. Cracking voluntary commitment!

Any Scouts that want to do the Cheshire Hike in the future should chat to all our veterans and ask them all about the experience!

Best wishes,

Skip
