Bridger Family Trophy Winners!

We had a really great St George’s Day parade on the 27th April with a service run by an Explorer Unit and a parade along Ewell Road in Tolworth. We even managed to stay dry throughout. The best part of the event for Chessington however was in us winning the Bridger Family Trophy for the smartest Group on parade! Over 1200 children and adults took part from over 18 Groups in the District. All the Leaders are very proud of the excellent behaviour and smart appearance of all of our Cubs, Beavers and Scouts. Thank you!

Christmas tree sale

Thank you very much to everyone who supported us for the Christmas tree sale this year, both to those who volunteered on the day and also those who came and bought one of our beautiful trees. We raised £170 for the Scout group and even had a guest appearance from Father Christmas!

Refreshing the Scouters room

The Scouts have been busy this term turning an old storage room into a room that the Scouts can use. The walls have been prepared, painting has started and the effort will go towards the DIY badge. We’ll post some photos of the end result when done…

More inclusive than ever

The Scout Association have confirmed this week that a new alternative Scout Promise will be introduced from the start of next year for people with no affirmed faith and humanists. The core Scout Promise remains unchanged and exploring faith, beliefs and attitudes remain a core element of the programme.
