36th Annual Ram Roast – A Great Success !

Thank you to everybody who came and supported our Group fundraising event on Saturday 5th May. The weather stayed kind although not as warm as in previous years!

Thousands of people enjoyed and watched a colourful procession through Cheadle High Street before heading to the Scout & Guide Centre within Abney Hall to enjoy an afternoon of arena events, sideshows and attractions for all ages.

All monies raised goes straight back into the running of 2nd Cheadle Scout Group ensuring we can provide excellent headquarters, equipment and vehicle to around 190 members aged 6 to 18 years old.

Thank you once again for supporting our event and we look forward to 37th event on Saturday 4th May 2013 !

Frivolous 11, Group Show February 2012

On ten previous occasions we have produced a Group show that is a compilations of songs, dances and sketches performed by our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and Leaders.

It will be held at the Peter Barkworth Theatre within Stockport College during the February half term school holidays and will be performed on three nights, Thursday 16th, Friday 17th and Saturday 18th February.

Because we are anxious that this experience should be fun for our young cast we purposely have a short rehearsal time. Each section rehearses during its colony, pack, troop or unit nights and it all comes together with the rehearsals just prior to the show nights. We do not have auditions for the show, whoever wishes to be involved can be; the emphasis is all about having constructive fun.

For further information please Contact Us.
