At Chichester we believe supporting our local groups and charities is a great way to get young people out on the hill!

Cotswold_Becoming_Scout1st Bognor Scouts became good friends with the team at Cotswold Outdoor Chichester last year when they had a “Scout Day” event in store. All staff members became honorary Scouts for the day which meant almost all conversations were around preparedness, bush craft,  and reminiscing on past Scout camps.

 

Since this event, we have supported and become their number one place for supplies. So much so, the Group Scout Leader applied for a Christmas temp job, and is still with us today! Some of the team have join the Scouting movement to be more involved, and from all account, they love it as much as the kids do.

We didn’t stop there…

#ChiActiveChichester Get Active Festival gave the opportunity for us to work together again. Whilst displaying our camping range, our outdoor clothing and our free fitting services. We could also show our involvement in the community. We became honorary Scouts again for the day. The event went very well, and working with the Scouts is effortless as they have the same passion and interests as we do.

 

1st Bognor Scouts and Cotswold Outdoor Chichester will always be good friends…
