Entries can be made at https://fullonsport.com/event/dog-tag-10k/profilePLEASE DO ENTER if you like running because it is an excellent course for all runners – PLEASE DO VOLUNTEER TO HELP ON THE DAY if you do not want to run but are willing to marshal or help at the venue – just email info@1stblackwatervalleyscouts.co.uk with your name and contact.
  • PARKING: There will be ample parking at the start which is in the centre of the training grounds. Entry is through the gate at the top of Kings Ride (where it bends left) the gate will be manned and Race Participants will be allowed to drive in. It is about half a mile to the parking. Please reverse park as directed. The venue is immediately beyond the parking area.
  • Our grateful thanks to sponsors:

  • Firework night: Wednesday the 6th of November

FUND RAISING is a constant requirement to help keep our existing Scout Hut together, keep an inventory of usable canvas and camping equipment; and keep our coach and minibus on the road.

LEADERS and PARENTS do a great deal with maintenance of hut and vehicles; but all too often there is the need for money as well as effort.

WE ARE CONSTANTLY trying to raise funds and apply for GRANTS. That takes up a great deal of precious time that we really want and need for the Beavers, cubs, Scouts and Senior Scouts to make things happen for them. That, after all, is what we are all about.

THE BEAVERS, CUBS, SCOUTS & SENIOR SCOUTS do get involved with gardening, repair work, keeping the vehicles clean and even servicing and maintenance of the vehicles by the older ones towards their mechanics badge.
