Community Litter Pick 2017


We have been invited by The Walton On Thames Trading Alliance and The Walton Society to take part in a Community Litter Pick. This has taken place on a couple of previous occasions and proven to be very successful. Volunteers from the staff at McDonalds, Sainsbury’s and The Heart alongside other local volunteers will also be taking part. This is a great opportunity to “give back” to our local community so if you are free between 10am and 11am this Sunday morning, please come along.
Date: this Sunday 8th January 
Time: meeting at 9.50am
Location: Outside The The Heart – Hight Street entrance
Please do email me if you can make it – Beavers, Cubs and Scouts must all be accompanied by an adult. 
Attending Scouts will complete part of their World Challenge award

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 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.
