2nd Atherton Scout Group is growing rapidly from humble beginnings and there have been Beavers, Cubs and Scouts at 2nd Atherton for over 100 years.
Over the last few years the troops have been very active, meeting once a week, and have had many weekends away (primarily under canvas). The scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. They learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, & even how to fly a plane.
On Wednesday 23rd March the scouts recently renovated camping trailer was stolen from outside their scout hut. The numerous camps for the entire group was placed at risk as there was no way of getting the considerable amount of camping equipment to the campsites all across the North West. Epic Kidz donated £600 to 2nd Atherton Scout Group to allow them to replace the stolen trailer so that they can now hit the road and attend the planned summer camps.
