Bell boating Scouts Hereford and Worcester

Worcestershire is home to Bell Boating, one of the easiest boats to get our young people onto and enjoy water activities. There is a whole host of facilities in Kidderminster, Worcester, Droitwich and Pershore that are easily accessible. To further develop the Scouting programme and support Bell boating in Worcestershire we are pleased to announce a number of activities for young people and adult leader development.

As such you are invited to bring your Group to the Bell Boat Regatta Fladbury Paddle Club, Fladbury Recreation Ground. The day’s activities will commence at 9.30am and finish at around 12.30pm. Full details will be provided nearer the date.

There are three race categories:

1. Year 6 and under (U/11): team of 8 children and 2 adults.

2. Year 7, 8 & 9 (11 to 14): team of 8 children.

3. Open – Year 10+ (14+): Parents, team leaders, older siblings etc. – teams of 8.

All races will be under the supervision of fully qualified instructors and boats will be steered by experienced helms (paddle club members).

There is an entry fee of £30.00 per crew. I very much hope that you’re able to take part. Please download the entry form Bell Boat Regatta 2019 May and email it to Andy Train (atrain1@btinternet.com) by Friday 12thApril.

If you wish to take your own groups paddling there are a number of adult training days which can be booked. You will receive full instruction and be provided with a Scouting Bell Boat Helm Permit. You will then be able to access all the facilities across the county. The training date available is Saturday 6th April. If there is more interest then other dates can be organised.  Please email Andy Train (atrain1@btinternet.com) to book on or organise/enquire for other dates.

Nature and the outdoors are languages that can be learned. Once you identify a beech tree, tie a clove hitch or cook a simple meal over a fire that you’ve built yourself, you’ll never forget it.'
