1st St Leonards Forest Scout Group – Horsham, West Sussex
“We are a large Scout Group of 220 youths aged between 6 and 18 years and 70 adults amongst the Leader and Helper teams. The interest in the build up to the fitting was of excitement and a little wonder as to what this investment will bring. Once fitted and a permanent part of the HQ the programmes of the Units from Beavers through to Explorers changed immediately. The scouts eagerly rush into the HQ to get onto the wall, changing a normally chaotic start to an evening into a quieter and orderly queue as they await their chance to traverse! Most evening plans include a chance of a climb and some interesting challenges.
From initial contact with CWS the response and follow ups were prompt and informative, the only hold up being us as volunteers sorting our side out. Further questions and enquiries from us were answered particularly quickly and with obvious authority and where necessary research too.
The installation was quick and tidily done, the two wall builders both polite, hard working and knowledgeable. They explained the uses and safety aspects.
Our wall is a straight forward one but we chose mats knowing that scouts will get as high as possible despite instructions to traverse, but also to cover up the wall when not in use, a particularly useful feature for a hall used by others in the community.
The work of CWS has transformed our HQ and possibly the lives of the Scouts that will benefit from its use. Working with CWS was a pleasure. This was and is an experience I would recommend to any interested in a Traversing wall. “
