NEW HQ for Tongham scout group


It is now all systems go, lease almost sorted and planning permission has gone in, if you want to check out the application then follow this link


Now all we need to do is raise at least £250,000!


As mountains are a bit short on the ground in Surrey, the 4th Farnham (Tongham) Scout Group has decided to use Farnham District’s Climbing Tower at Garners’ Field to collectively climb the tower to at least the height of Ben Nevis, 1,345m. All money raised will go towards the rebuilding of the HQ.

All Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers, Leaders, Parents and Siblings can take part, you just have to be at least 6 years of age and reasonably fit. We will be meeting at Garners Field Scout Campsite, Sheephatch Lane, Tilford on Saturday 30th September from 08.30.

For a sponsorship form and book a climbing slot, contact Bat at Scouts, email on tonghamscoutgroup@gmail.com or speak to your Leader, if climbing is not your thing then still grab a form and sponsor the whole Group and volunteer on the day to make the whole event run smoothly.

New HQ

Great news at long last planning application is about to go in to Surrey for our new building. Just need £250000. The ball is rolling.
