35 Cub Scouts, Scouts, Explorer Scouts and Leaders from the 6th Reigate visited the Chatham Historic Dockyard on the 40's day.

It was a very busy day which included rope making, visiting shops of a bygone era and looking over ships and other aspects of the museum.

The 40's day attracted vintage cars, old fashioned military uniforms various 40's acts and much more.

An entertaining and informative day was enjoyed by all.

Unexpectedly the 6th met up with members of the 7th Reigate later in the day.

Startofhike-s17TH REIGATE EXPLORERS RAISE THOUSANDS FOR NEW SCOUT HALL

Six Explorer Scouts from 17th Reigate (St. Joseph’s) Scout Group in Redhill, Surrey have recently completed an arduous hike raising over £4,000 towards building a new Scout Hall. Matt Brown and Albert Phillipson (both 17 years old), together with Sam Holmes, Adam L’Estrange, Miles Baker, and Chris Marks (all 16 years old) walked 180Km in six days from Brownsea Island in Hampshire (the birthplace of Scouting) back to the site of the new Hall at St. Joseph’s Church Redhill. Carrying their rucksacks and sleeping in tents and other Scout Halls, the team had to endure blazing sunshine, heavy thunderstorms, painful blisters, aching shoulders, and the occasional snake (ok it was a slow-worm!). This is the longest hike completed in the Group’s history and was conceived and planned by the Explorers after the proposal for the new hall was announced in January this year. Albert said “we’ve all been in 17th Reigate for a long time and saw this as a way of giving something back to the Group before we leave. There were times on the hike when morale was low, especially when the blisters were bad and we knew we still had a long way to walk. But we supported each other and made it through to our destination each day”. Tony Brown, Explorer Scout Leader said that the Group is immensely proud of them: “this was a very tough challenge they set for themselves and there were times when they had to dig deep, but they all made it and the sense of achievement will stay with them for a long time”.

Reigate (St. Joseph’s) Scout Group has around 120 young people between 6 and 18 years old, and is temporarily without a permanent home following the re-development of the old Parish hall. The Group is fund-raising towards a target of £150,000 to build a purpose-built Scout hall which will be its first permanent home in the Group’s 97-year history.
