Come and Ride the Blackpool Lights!

Ride The Lights

Chorley Scouts will be riding the lights in Blackpool on Tuesday, Sept 1st. If you would like to take part, please contact Steve Riding at the email address given on the flyer. We are looking at transporting all bikes together to make things a bit easier for you, so we need to have a good idea of who will be coming!

This is a great way to see the lights, have fun with other scouts, keep fit and get that cyclist badge – what could be better? We may even stop off at the chippy

Archery – Change of Date

We have discovered that there is a clash with a major local event for our scheduled Archery Competition – the last session. So that everyone can attend, we have decided to move this event to the Sunday – July 12.

Wild Weekend – District Camp

It has been a long time since we had a District Camp for the scout section, so we thought we would have a go at organising one and see what kind of response we got! The Wild Weekend will take place over the weekend of July 3,4,5, 2015 at Bowley Scout camp, Great Harwood. There are lots of great activities planned and plenty of free time to explore for yourselves too, so get booked in today! The form below is to let us know your preferences for the activities – 1 being your favourite and 9 being your least favourite – Its first come, first served – so get your form in now!
