District Equipment for Use/Hire

The District has access to a number of items that can be hired by our Groups.  These are as follows:

  • A comprehensive set of camping equipment, mostly stored at Stoke Poges.  This includes a number of patrol tents and other items. Please contact John Foxwell (j.foxwell@ealingandhanwellscouts.org.uk), our District QM, to make enquiries.

  • A box trailer.  This is an Ifor Williams BV85 6’ Single Axle.  Stored at 1st Hanwell but please contact Ben Pearson (b.pearson@ealingandhanwellscouts.org.uk) to book.

  • 4 District branded Feather Flags; 2 x large and 2 x medium.  Can be anchored into soft ground or on hard ground using parasol bases (we have these).  Contact DC Team to book.
  • 5 x Spot3 GPS Trackers.  Designed for remote supervision of groups whilst on expedition.  Uses a GPS signal so no mobile signal needed for the trackers although the supervision team need mobile signal to view locations.  Due to the high cost of maintaining these there is a hire fee of £10 per tracker per hire. These belong to the District Explorer Section so once again please contact Ben (b.pearson@ealingandhanwellscouts.org.uk) to book.  GLMW have an additional 5 trackers that can be hired and this is also arranged through Ben.
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
