Why we need your help

Rimmington Water Activities Day

On the 21 st May 2016, at 10.00 Am at Manvers Waterfront Boat Club near Wath upon Dearne, South Yorkshire Scouting is to recognize and celebrate the lives of two extra special people.

There can be few people who have given more to Scouting than Bill and Eunice Rimmington. Indeed, when the 23rd Barnsley Scout Group lost the use of the storage facility for the groups camping equipment, Bill took up the dining room carpet and their front room became for years the groups new storage facility.

For some time, it has been an aspiration to re-run the water activities weekend that Bill and Eunice so brilliantly organized at Bretton Park on the outskirts of Barnsley, and following the completion of the new building at Manvers we feel now that the time is right to offer this activity again.

As a lasting memory, we thought that the two of them would not appreciate a plaque as a reminder of their efforts but something more practicable. One, amongst many of Bill and Eunice's aims, was to give the love of the great outdoors to people who are not as fortunate as us. Their days with the childern of Rockley Mount School in Barnsley, is the stuff of legend. Abseiling with childern in a wheelchair had to be seen to be believed! To offer the opportunity to experience water activities, it was thought that they would think the purchase of two double kayaks would be a much better idea.

We are cordially inviting everyone who ever knew Bill and Eunice to share the day with us on 21st May but we are also appealing, even if you are only able to contribute a small amount, to help us raise £2500 for the purchase of two kayaks, which in a naming ceremony will be forever called, Bill and Eunice!

Thank You

Best Regards
