1st Whitnash Scout Group
The 1st Whitnash Scouts is a successful group within the town, having awarded 4 Chief Scouts Gold Awards in the last 6 months. In the last Warwickshire Scout competition camp, our teams came 1st and 2nd.
We championed the use of LED street lighting rather than sodium, and presented to Whitnash Town Council. Cllr Bernard Kirton raised this with Warwickshire County Council, who then took it to central Government to seek extra funding to convert the whole County, with massive savings possible.
Our activities include 2 or 3 camps a year (featuring archery, air rifle shooting, climbing, abseiling etc.) Our Scouts have learned DIY skills such as changing tap and cistern washers, painting, and bike maintenance. We have even stripped and rebuilt a computer!!
1st Whitnash had a large input of recruits 4 years ago, and 10 of these have now reached the age of 14, and moved on to Explorers. Therefore, we now have vacancies for girls and boys, between 10.5 and 14 years of age, who wish to join in the adventure.
The Group meets on Tuesday evenings 7.30 – 9pm at the Methodist Church Hall. For details of how to join, please contact the Scout leader, John McMahon, telephone 01926 775942, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
