A Return of a Boxing Day Tradition – December 2021

Date: 22nd Mar 2023 Author: Scout Websites

It was great to see members at Tilgate Lake out Canoeing and Kayaking again, keeping up one of the Group’s traditions. We have paddled at Tilgate on Boxing Days for so long no one knows when it started, the only year we missed was last year when we were in lock down.

We had a few Scouts join us and a number of our paddlesport instructors. Even more so this year a lot of members were away with their families, and of course some just wanted to stay in bed!

It was great to also see a number of members of the group come down and see the paddlers and have a walk around the lake.

There is no better way to spend Boxing Day morning that out in the fresh air enjoying the wonderful facility we have in Tilgate Park.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
