Chickenley ScoutsAbout Chickenley Scouts Group

The Chickenley Scouts Group first started when there was limited opportunities for children in Chickenley to enjoy. The group which started in 2004 offers a range of activities to help the scouts develop both social and life skills, as well as helping to fundraise and volunteer at local care homes and schools in the area.

Why does Chickenley Scouts Group deserve to win a summer day out?

The volunteers work tirelessly to ensure that the Scouts are constantly learning, improving and bettering themselves and their futures. Without the Chickenley Scout Group, children in the area would miss out on learning some extremely valuable life lessons and it has been a lifeline to a group of children that would otherwise be left to play out on the streets. Their hard work and efforts giving back to community is a fantastic reason for why they should be rewarded for their efforts.
