Syston Scout Group have lots planned for this new year from Camps in and outside of Leicestershire, great trips to explore new places and even a chance to sleep on HMS Bristol at Portsmouth!
Also the Group will be putting on Fun Events for friends, families and the general public to take part in. Starting with Syston Scout and Guide Bands Show ‘Sticks & Tones’ on the 23rd February, Family Race Night on the 23rd March and a Fun Walk/Run around Watermead County Park in June.
As well as fun trips out, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Syston Scout and Guide Band will continue to provide a a weekly programme for Young People aged from 6 – 25 Years in our Scout Hall on Oxford Street in Syston.
The Scout Hall has been on Oxford Street since Mr Moore and Mrs Maclearn Todd back in 1936 (see picture right ) and over the years has had some improvements made.
Over the next year we are looking to bring the Hall more up to date and improve access including an access ramp to the rear, new toilets with easy disabled access, new front gate for a more secure but friendly new look.
We have now a new storage extension and now looking for help and support to make this useable to store kit and equipment. Also we are looking at improving and upgrading items in and out of the hall, such as re-painting the hall, improving the lighting, paving and gardening the rear grass area to name a few.
If you would like to volunteer, help improve our Scout Hall or get your son or daughter to join the adventure, please contact Chris Bodycot – 0788 424 5089 [email protected].
Syston Scout Group is open to girls and boys aged from six years upwards.
