Tom Worsfold Memorial Hall

Cranleigh Scout Executive Committee have decided to name their HQ as the Tom Worsfold Memorial Hall at a short ceremony at 7.30pm on Tuesday 21st May in recognition of his 40 years of service to the Scout Group and village. The renaming by Davey Worsfold will be followed by our AGM and refreshments.

Please notify any interested villages who would like to be present especially those who knew Tom and remember him fondly. Please assemble on the green by the Scout Hall – parking is free after 7pm. (Tom would like that ! )

Fund Raising Events

Thanks for those who helped on the Mabac Run in March. The Scout group have received a generous £1000 donation for providing four water stations for the very appreciative runners.

The next opportunity to help raise funds for the group will be on Sunday 30th June where we attend to the car parking for the Cranleigh Show. Two hour slots from 10am you may well be rewarded with a complimentary show ticket. Email Colin or Dave to express your interest. Children under 14 years not permitted to assist – Show rules.

Water Stations for MABAC Runnners 31st March 2019.

Our Group receives a considerable amount of funds by providing 3 water stations for the 15/21 mile road race on 31st Sunday March –  Race Starts 9am    Mothers Day and clock go back as well.
It’s a great family activity – poring water into cups and handing to grateful runners as they plod bye. Take my word it’s really good fun – water action and smiles.
Anyway please volunteer by email to or pick up a flyer at the HQ next time picking up kiddos. Thanks Dave Saunders AGSL and Colin GSL.
