The 1st Tarporley Scouts completed a six week canoeing course on the River Dee at Chester Canoeing club, the Scouts learnt basic skills such how to control the canoe, how to get out safely when they capsize and by the end of the course they were going down the weir confidently. The Scouts had great fun as well as learning some valuable skills.
This was all made possible by the generous donation of two canoes from MBNA who stepped in when some of our tall lads and lassies could no longer use the existing ones. Our new larger sized canoes will be used on camps with Scouts and explorers.
Scouts meet every Tuesday in term time at the Hut from 7pm for more information see the website www.tarporley-scouts.org.uk and on Twitter @1stTarporleyScouts
