Beaver Scouts Daffodil Planting

1st Taxal Beavers have been busy in the Memorial Park once again, where we spent a pleasant

evening merrily helping Paul, the Park Manager, to plant Daffodil bulbs for next Spring.

We all got a little muddy but it was great fun and the display next year will make it all worthwhile.

Many thanks to Paul for letting us help, to some of the older Scouts who helped us dig some holes and to Tesco Whaley Bridge for assisting with the bulbs.

Keep an eye out for the results of our efforts next March!!!

Scout's Coffee morning - 17th October 2015

It is coming up to the time of year again when 1st Taxal Scouts have the opportunity to host our annual coffee morning at the Mechanics Institute in Whaley Bridge. The coffee morning is an invaluable way to publicise and raise funds for the Group and we need your help to make the morning a success. As always there are many ways that you can help:-

  1. Help on the day serving drinks, cakes and selling raffle tickets - if you can’t help all morning just an hour would be great.
  2. Bake cakes or buns to sell on the day - Please bring these to the Mechanics at 9 am on the Saturday morning or if you can’t make it Saturday we can arrange an alternative drop off.
  3. Donate a raffle or tombola prize,  If every beaver/cub/scout/explorer could donate one thing that would be fantastic, please drop any donations to the leaders room at the hut before day.
  4. Support us on the day and head to the Mechanics for a drink!

A new term is upon us!

As quickly as they came, the Summer holidays are gone and 1st Taxal Scouts are back until Xmas. The section nights will be returning from next week and the leaders will be in touch soon with more information on the packed schedules.

As an early heads-up we have several activities in the coming weeks:

  • October 17th is the Scouts Coffee morning at the Mechanics Institute
  • November 5th is bonfire night at the scout hut on New Road
  • November 8th is Memorial Sunday in the Memorial Park
More information will follow but get them in your calendar now.

As always the group remains incredibly popular and we have a large waiting list for spaces, we will be in touch to offer what few spaces we have to people on the waiting list shortly. 

We would very much like to set up a second Cub and Scout pack but we cannot grow any more without more volunteers. If you are able to help in any way then please email 

Many thanks for your patience and assistance
