Clive and the Rope Swing - Gift Aid Declaration
In 2019 the Group Scout Leader, Clive Winder, and Assistant Scout and Explorer Leader Alison Redmond, had discussed the idea of building an indoor climbing wall at the Scout Headquarters. Sadly, Clive who passed away after an unexpected cardiac arrest due to COVID-19 infection, and the Group felt it would be very fitting to commemorate him by completing this project and dedicating the wall in his name.
The plan is to install a wall, a bit like this photo, that would be suitable for the range of ages that we have within the Group including lower levels for bouldering, for 2 Beaver colonies (6-8 years) 2 cub packs (8 – 10.5 years) a Scout Troop (10.5-14 years) and an Explorer unit (15-18 years). There are around 170 potential users of the equipment in the Abbots Langley Scout Group alone, and outside of this it is hoped that some other Scout and perhaps youth groups might also be able to use the facilities. The ability to climb indoors in the wet, cold winter months will be a real bonus.
