Getting afloat on the Group’s Open Day

Families getting afloat during our Open DayThe sun came out for the day for our Open Day at The Den on Sunday 5 June. Every year at the start of the summer we throw open our doors and invite parents, family and friends into The Den to see what we get up, meet the leader team and get out on the water. Most of the fleet went afloat, taking visitors out for rides on our safety boats, tours or Old Leigh in the Yellow Boat, or trying their hand at sailing the gig and dinghies. There was also a BBQ and a selection of cakes donated by parents, plus games like Bat the Rat and Pin the hat on the Sea Scout for our younger members.

In total we raised £312.65 from the BBQ, cake stall and games. Thank you to everyone who donated, helped out, or just came down for the day.
