Getting ready for the summer - new Paddleboards


In order to give our young people another adventurous activity, we have made a major investment in Paddleboards for the 2021 water season. The 7th has paid for 10 boards and, thanks to a generous donation by Sports England we have been able to boost this to 15 boards. This will enable us to run sessions for up to 12 young people at a time.

Today is a big day for us. We have taken delivery of the first of our new Paddleboards! There are still some more to come but it is very exciting to be able to see our plans coming together.

We can not touch them yet, not even to inflate them, because of lockdown - but we can now begin to really believe that we will be on the water soon.

The Paddleboards add to our existing fleet of Canadian Canoes, Kayaks and raft building kit.

In our last proper year (before this COVID madness) we ran well over 1000 water sessions at Manor Park. We run sessions for all of the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the 7th Lichfield but also for Explorers from all 4 Lichfield Explorer Units and for Beavers, Cubs and Scout from many other Lichfield groups and beyond.

We are always looking for new adult volunteers to join our Paddlesport team. If you have an enthusiasms for all things watery and you fancy getting involved with a friendly group that is dedicated to giving young people an experience of adventure on the water, please get in touch (just fill in the form on the right of this page and someone will get in touch with you). You do not need any previous experience - but it would be a good idea if you can swim!

Please see the Paddlesport section of our website for more details.

COVID-19 is the biggest crisis we’ve faced in a generation. Now, over 500 Scout groups – many of them based in communities that were already made vulnerable before the virus hit – are struggling to make ends meet. If they close their doors, thousands of young people will miss out on all the life-changing skills and experiences being a Scout can bring, precisely when they need us most.

Scouts are setting off on an epic #RaceRoundTheWorld to help the 500+ Scout Groups hardest hit by the crisis.

The lockdown has been a challenge, but the Leaders at the 7th have risen to that challenge. We have continued to provide online virtual Scouting to all 9 of our sections.

But, finally, we are back to face-to-face activities, albeit in a limited fashion. We have had our first groups of Cubs and Scouts out on the water in kayaks at Manor Park.
