All Scouts from 28th Croydon Scouts were invited to take part in three sessions of water activities at South Norwood Lake. Recently unofficially renamed ‘Sir Arthur Conan Doyle Lake’, the local beauty spot provides an invaluable local resource to learn skills in sailing, canoeing and kayaking, as well as general safety in open boats on the water.
Each session was held on a Saturday morning and gave the scouts three hours of time on the water (for only £6!). Everyone agreed it was a great success, even Troop Leader Tony, who ended up in the lake!

About 28th Croydon
We are a thriving Group with approximately 180 members providing scouting five nights a week to young people between the ages of 6 and 14.
We offer our members a very wide range of activities and give them the opportunity to develop new skills and enjoy the company of friends in a well organised and safe environment. We work very closely with parents and encourage them to become fully involved in the life of the Group.
