 Thank you all for your support yesterday. It was a great day!
The turnout was excellent and I was especially pleased to see 1st SLF taking up my offer to attend.
As we sold out of trail maps we think we had 50+ youngsters taking part in the afternoon, each with a parent/parents/grandparents so at least 100 people altogether.
As always, without help from all of you we could not stage this event.
The cakes were brilliant and added to the appeal of the day. Thanks to all of you who slaved over …

Riverside Walk
1st Roffey helped and took part in the 2017 riverside walk, which is a circular walk of 13 miles long which virtually encompasses the town of Horsham using paths alongside various watercourses.
The walk passes through a number of different landscapes including woodland, pastures and farmland. The historical importance of the rivers is also reflected in the sites along the route. These include several mills, the remains of a motte, bailey castle and Leechpool woods.
1st Roffey also supplied shelter at Warnham Nature Reserve in the form of mess …

 1st Roffey yet again put on a fantastic show at the district raft race, we had two very well constructed, sturdy rafts, one manned by a team of young members 12years and under, the other manned by an older team of 13 years and over.
Both of these crafts were a credit to the skill of the builders and the guidance of the leaders, where many of the rafts from other groups hardly got wet before disintegrating, it was a joy to watch our young …

Just as last year, we aim to make this a sponsored event raising funds for ourselves and for the walk’s charity Action Medical Research for Children.
The full walk is approximately 13 …
