Batchworth Sea Scouts host an annual Family Sailing Evening at Bury Lake Young Mariners (BLYM), Rickmansworth Aquadrome each summer.  It an opportunity for members to come and try Sailing, Kayaking, Canoeing and Dragon Boating; all current Batchworth families and supporters are invited.  BLYM is the water sports centre 5 minutes walk from the main Aquadrome car park, where cars are normally left. Access is via Frogmoor Lane, just off Harefield Road. The centre is then along the path running to the left of the café.

Over 200 people regularly attend, giving family members of all ages a chance to experience fun on the water and relax with friends. We normally also hold our Annual General Meeting during the event and presented a number of Wood Badges, long-service awards and votes of thanks to our volunteers.

Due to the current circumstances, all future events are postponed until further notice.

Covid-19 and Scouting

Batchworth Sea Scouts follows the advice of The Scout Association in relation to the safe delivery of Scouting, who in turn work with The National Youth Agency to translate Government advice into governance rules.  They have implemented a tiered Readiness Level, controlling the type of activities that can be delivered based on local conditions.

We are currently at Yellow readiness level allowing group sessions where precautions and social distancing are implemented, including small overnight expeditions.  We expect further changes in the coming months as the national picture evolves.

Leaders continue to work with parents to deliver the best scouting experience possible, whilst conforming to the current Readiness Level restrictions.

Thank you to everyone for your support in these times and please contact us with ideas, suggestions and requests.

Meeting Times

Currently, meeting times are subject to amendment to accommodate the best programme delivery within Covid restrictions.
