Your chance to spend half a day at Pinsent !

Saturday, October 8th & Sunday, October 9th


Pinsent is widely used by all the Groups in the District but is managed and maintained by a very small group of people. The day-to-day maintenance is fine but it is not possible for all the larger projects and jobs to undertaken by those few people. To enable these larger jobs to be tackled, we hold two weekends a year, one in both the Spring and Autumn when we ask for as many volunteers from the District as possible to come along and help.

Although it is good to have the Young People along, under supervision, the real aim is to encourage adults to get involved. We are not fussy and will welcome Leaders, Helpers, Parents, Exec members, etc. in fact anyone with a remote association with Winchester District Scouts.

In the past, we have had a small, but very enthusiastic, group of helpers turn up but we would really like to get more people involved.  Two of our uniformed volunteers, Andy and Martyn already do a great deal to support Pinsent in addition to all the work they do with our Cubs and Scouts, and it would be great to see some more parents turn out on the day to help maintain this amazing facility for our youngsters and to show some support for all the hard work done by a small band of volunteers !
