1st Wonersh Cubs have a blast at SCRAM 2016

SCRAM (74 of 77)

In June the boys from 1st Wonersh Cubs attended the District SCRAM event at the Hook Arena in Epsom.  SCRAM is the County-wide event bringing all of the Packs together for a day of outdoor activities.  Whilst the leadership team ran an event which replicated the Royal Marines’ Field Gun Race, the boys toured the showground to try the many activities on offer.  The activities included Quad bikes, zip wires, zorbing, and inflatable slides – but also many more traditional Scouting activities involving wood crafts and back-woods cooking.  The opportunity was also taken to invest the new County Commissioner – and the boys gave him a proper group welcome.

It was a grey weather day, but thankfully the rain stayed away.  The field was wet when we arrived, and by the end of the day resembled some of the muddier images of Glastonbury.  The boys went home happy, tired and incredibly muddy.


A huge thanks to all of those involved in the organisation and running of the day!

William Garvey – New GSL

On July 24th Wonersh Scouts held our Annual General Meeting and took this opportunity to invest William Garvey as our new GSL (Group Scout Leader).

William is new to the area and new to Scouting which in many ways, makes him an ideal candidate, as he is able to question what we currently do and see everything with fresh eyes. I am sure William’s infectious energy will soon have us all trying new things and pushing the group to new heights.

William has already been very involved with Burger Stalls, Car Parking and Cranleigh Carnival and to all of these, he has brought his whacky sense of humour and a real ‘can do’ attitude.

William’s daughter Chloe has also joined the Beaver Colony recently and we wish both William and Chloe a long and enjoyable relationship with Wonersh Scouts.

Great to have you on board.

Experiment Badge

A huge thank you to the Head of Science, Mr Radwanski and Hamish at Glebelands School for taking the Beavers through an investigation towards their experiment badge. At the end they treated us to a demonstration which was magical!




We would like to appoint a treasurer to keep track of our few financial affairs. There will be a good handover period and plenty of support.

This is a vital role we need to fill to keep Wonersh Scouts up and running. Please ask anyone you think may have the skills to help us.

Many thanks

Beavers to the Rescue!

Beavers enjoyed a great evening at Cranleigh Fire Station tonight. Starting with an overview of the service they then had a tour of the fire engine and all the equipment where they asked lots of excellent questions. To finish the evening off all the Beavers were trained on using the powerful hoses and seeing how many floors up the building they can reach. Sadly some just preferred to get us all wet! Thank you to everyone at the fire station for your time and enthusiasm.
