The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme in Witham BB

Hi everyone. We are looking to re - establish The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme in Witham BB, with the help of Luke Freeman.

You will need to be 14 years and upward to take part. The Award consists of the following :

Volunteering (helping people in the community)
• Skills (covering almost any interest, hobby or skill)
• Physical (sport, dance and fitness)
• Expeditions (planning and completing a journey on foot, horseback, bike or boat)

The BB UK is a registered D of E authority, so we should be fine.

More details soon, but in the meantime if you are interested, please let me know thanks John

Powerboat Outings are finished now but we need help with maintenance

The outings for this summer and autumn are now over and plans are being made to repair things, maintain the engines for winter and put the boat to bed. However, we have significant problems with the trailer. It needs repairs and we need help to do this, particularly over the first three weeks of October. Please ask John for further details

Jason and Ethan are now qualified powerboat level two drivers ! Well done guys.

If you would like to learn how to drive the RIB and undertake a weekend course at Bradwell or Tollesbury, please talk to John. The costs will be covered in return for you volunteering on the boat for a few sessions, next spring, summer and autumn, by agreement and arrangement.
