To provide shelter during the lunch stop at Warnham Nature Reserve, the 1st Roffey Scout Group has once again kindly agreed to loan and erect large tents to give protection from rain or hot sun.

Jane Apostolou, chair of the organisers, Horsham Town Community Partnership (HTCP), said, “The help from the Scouts will be great benefit on the day and contribute to its success. We want to ‘Be Prepared’.”

The 1st Roffey Scout Group is one of the oldest Scout groups in Horsham having been continuously in existence from 1920. Scouting encourages young people and adults to develop and learn - whilst having fun and offers a range of scouting activities for boys, girls and young adults aged 6-18 through Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers.

This year, those taking part on the Walk are being asked to collect cash, perhaps by sponsorship, for the local children’s charity Action Medical Research whose mascot, Paddington, will be present on the day.

Please contact Action by phone 07821 117881 or email [email protected] for a sponsorship pack (or donate on the day).

Paddington will assist at the start of the Walk at 10am at Horsham Rugby Club and will be at Warnham at lunch time. Later, back at the rugby club, he will help by handing out certificates to walk finishers.

HTCP are asking for registration beforehand by phone 07780 701184 or email on [email protected] as it helps to know the likely numbers taking part for catering purposes.
