Steve swims the channel for 1st Walton!

Steve Maloney is a parent in the District, who has been in full training since last year preparing to swim the channel… If all goes to plan, conditions, tides, sea traffic etc, Steve hopes to depart the UK during the week of 20-27 July 2018.

Once underway you can track the swim: http://cspf.co.uk/tracking – Sea Satin.

The Group are currently looking into how we can support Steve during his courageous crossing… if anyone is interested, please contact Jez at gsl@waltonviking.or.uk
Thanks

My Story…

District Water Activities weekend, Paxmead – Sep 2017 (thanks TEAMVIKING)

Viking Village Fayre 2017

Planning for our second Village Fayre is well underway. It is taking place on Saturday 22nd July 12-3 pm at Felix Recreation Ground (the park next to the Scout Hut) so please save the date!Last year’s Fayre proved to be a very successful fundraising event with all profits going towards out current building project.
 
We are currently seeking sponsorship and stall holders, so if you do know of a local business or group who might like to get involved, please do pass on my details.

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!

In the Summer Term of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts we will be asking for donations of bottles and nearly new cuddly toys as well as organising rotas for the stalls to be run by the parents of each section.
 
Your help and support with this is invaluable as all funds raised not only help to improve the Scout Hut facilities but also help to fund trips and outings for our Scout Group.
 
Many thanks,
 
Nessie

HQ Development update


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.
