Ray Mears 

Adults in Scouting - keep the date free - 21st April 2018.  I did say there would be more details to follow...so here you are - 

We are going to put on a Leader and Network Training Day on the weekend of the 21st / 22nd April at Broadstone Warren.  

The brief outline (and subject to change) will be


  • 9am start (with an option to camp the night before)
  • 10am to 12noon - breakout sessions to include
    • fire lighting
    • backwoods cooking
    • tent pitching
    • scouting skills
    • first aid
    • programme sharing
  • 12 to 2pm - Lunch (self provided)
  • 2pm to 5pm - breakout sessions to include the above
  • 5pm to 6pm - set up your own campsite
  • 6pm to 7pm – Hog Roast.  Bar open.
  • 7pm - 10.30pm Music Festival - with County musicians
  • 11pm - Bar Closes

Sunday (possibly)

  • 12noon - depart for St Georges Celebrations with an alternative to host a St Georges Day Celebration for all Sections

During the 2 days, we are trying to arrange 'have-a-go' sessions with various activities in Broadstone - hopefully to include Archery, Pot Holing, Abseiling, Crate Stacking and the new Zip wire.

We've also managed to secure Ray Mears to lead the fire lighting session on Saturday morning.

Excited?  Keep it free and we’ll let you know more nearer the time.
