Car Park and Tarmac Project

With a project running from 25th October to 4th November, our car park has had a massive upgrade. It was supported and organised by Tarmac Limited with discount rate groundworks by G N Groundworks of Telford who were magnificent. The final finished surface was done by Premier Surfacing. Excellent teamwork all round. The project was finished on time and the final result looks great.

Thank You to the Freemasons

A huge THANK YOU to the Freemasons from the Provincial Grand Lodge of Warwickshire for their generous donation towards the projects we hope to achieve this year. They have given us £1,000 for which we are extremely grateful.

The money will be put towards the list of projects we are hoping to carry out this year including electrical work, tarmacking the rear driveway to create extra car parking spaces and the drawing up of the plans for the Air Rifle and Archery Range that we are hoping to get built (fund raising dependent).

Open Day

This year’s Open Day is being held on Saturday 22nd September 2018 at 12pm – 3pm. It’s the chance for local residents to “See Beyond the Gate” and have guided tours of our woodland and millpool. There will be lots of fun activities for all ages including a BBQ, tea & coffee, cake stall, raffle, archery, den building, face painting and a whole lot more. See you there!

County Night Hike Badge Design

Congratulations Ellen! Last night Ellen Cole was presented with her certificate for winning the competition across all Solihull Scouts to design the next County Night Hike badge. Her drawing was selected and has been transformed into the final badge, which looks fantastic. Well done Ellen and most fitting it was presented at our Scout Night Hike start point.
