We were very proud to see that Scouting has again had a strong presence in the annual Riverside Walk. 1st Roffey supplied and erected the tents for the lunch stop at Warnham Nature Reserve providing shelter for all the intrepid walkers. There was a strong turn out of adult volunteers, parents, Scouts, Cubs and Beavers from 1st Roffey and 5th/10th Horsham groups who walked part or all of the route for charity. Thirteen miles of it! They all had a chance to meet Jeremy Quin our local MP and Paddington Bear who were both present at Warnham.
It was great to see children of all levels in Scouting taking part in this annual event, giving them a chance to support a charity and strengthening the ties between Scouts and our local community. They were exceptional ambassadors for Scouting and should be proud of themselves.
Of course none of this could be possible without the help and support of the leaders and adult helpers. If you are interested in becoming more involved in Scouting as a leader please contact Peter Scofield – District Commissioner for more information or go to http://www.horshamscouts.com/join-us/want-to-join/
