Dear all,

I now have the information for County Rally.


Scouts will be travelling to Waddecar by minibus from the layby on Syke House Lane. They will need to be there by 7 o'clock.

Parents need to collect the Scouts from Waddecar on Sunday after 3:30. Please try not to be early, there will not be much parking space! I will have the Scouts ready to go by the track on Bill's Meadow (the big field on the way into site).


Lots of activities are available, a copy of the camp programme is available here.

All food will be provided from Friday supper to Sunday lunch, a menu is available here, in addition there will be chip shop on site on both nights. This will cost money so if you want your child to eat chips send him with some.


In addition to the chippy, there is a shop on site selling sweets pop souvenirs etc. again if you want them to buy sweets they will need a little more money.

Mobile Phones
