Anderton St. Joseph's Scouts
Anderton St Joseph’s Scout Group continues to go from strength to strength and now provides a structured learning and a fun environment to over 70 young people from the village and surrounding areas. The Group consists of the three sections, Beavers (6-8 years old) Cubs (8 to 10 years old) and Scouts (10 to 14 years).
The Group strives to prepare young people for the world in which they will live by providing life skills not taught in schools. We seek to improve the health and wellbeing of our youngsters through a fun based programme that in the last twelve months have seen all the sections out camping, taking part in varied and challenging outdoor activities, environmental projects as well as cultural and educational visits, see us at http://www.asjscouts.org.uk/
The Group has an excellent and well trained group of Leaders but as we have grown we have become victims of our own success and now desperately need additional leaders across all sections to help us provide even better scouting for more of our young people. There is nothing more rewarding for a leader than to see a child smile and you get to do all the fun things.
Chorley Ramblers offer a wide variety of walks within the beautiful West Pennine Moors and the outlying villages from Rivington in the East to Mawdesley in the West and from Hoghton in the North to Adlington in the South. We also venture further afield to the Lake District, Yorkshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire. Here is a link to there website, which has information about them and listings of forthcoming walks.
Walking is a popular pastime, so for those with a desire to blow the cobweb's away after a long winter here is information about a book telling the story of the "Lost Farms of Brinscall Moors" and details of three walks linked to the book.
