We had another successful year with our second Viking Village Fayre 2017. Despite the driving rain, the public kindly supported us again.. Brooklands Radio broadcasted their show from the venue www.brooklandsradio.co.uk/podcasts/WaltonVikingSeaScoutsFair2017-07-22.mp3 … The Dogshow and Duckathon proved very successful again…
If you would like to be a part of the organising committee, please do let me know – there are lots of jobs big or small that anyone with a spare 5 mins can do – the current team manage to fit it all around their full time jobs and family commitments – so it can be done!
As you may have seen on display in the kitchen, we are embarking on a redevelopment of our HQ. We plan to progress in three phases over the next few years.
We are starting our first work during the Easter holidays when we are stripping out are refurbishing the bathrooms. We are also turning the current kitchen door into a fire door in order to increase privacy for the girls change room and converting the leaders room into the new entrance hall. We will build benches in the girl’s change room and hooks for hanging bags and towels
We hope to have the bathrooms back in operation as soon as possible, however our sections will probably only start back at the hall in the week after schools return.
I have setup a doodle poll for a series of Monday evenings between now and the summer. I am suggesting between 8pm and 10pm as that should give the opportunity to get kids to bed etc, but if you would prefer a different time, just let me know. Monday is the only night where we don’t have a section meeting, however we could possibly do Wednesday evening after beavers too if that suits better.
The first evening is Monday 30th November and during this evening, depending on how many people we get, I would like to look at doing some maintenance on the rowing boats including sanding down and (perhaps) varnishing some of the wooden trim and a few oars. There are a few other jobs we could tackle as well if we have a good turnout.
Please visit http://doodle.com/poll/mhri7nebgi68dqp9 and let us know if you can help. No prior experience is required and full training on sanding can be given so I hope you will support us.
We have a Closed Facebook group where we can share information, photos and info as well as buy/sell and swap uniform, wetsuits and all the other bits and bobs we need to do :-). You can also see advance notice of events and offer to help.
