Choosing when to have the Winter Event is not as easy as you may think! 2023 was perfectly timed though, a clear, crisp, DRY, winter evening to come together and celebrate all that’s great at this time of year.

Stanford is a wonderful venue, we know walking the lane is a challenge for many but if you make it, it is always worth the effort.

Wide games safely played in the dark are exciting, exploring is great fun and excellent hot bbq food and drink. Followed by a walk through the dark to the campfire circle for the warmth and welcome of a fantastic fire with such amazing singing! Then plenty of room to stand back and watch brilliant fireworks.

This evening was well received and great fun. An awful lot of work went in all afternoon to set up and a couple of hours to clean and pack away but well worth the effort. Many, many thanks to all the adults and young people who helped make this a special evening to lift the spirits and get us through the cold winter.

If you would like to be part of this fantastic team please speak to any of us – as little or as much time as you want to give. Scouts is a very special thing in which to take part.
