Due to unprecedented demand experienced by our grower/supplier we cannot accept any more orders. Thank you for your support, have a wonderful festive season, and we hope to see you next year.
You may have heard that Elmbridge Council have announced plans to sell Vine Hall for development, and that our Scout Hut is behind that site.
Disappointingly we have had no contact from any of the councillors or staff directly involved in drafting that proposal.
Luckily Cllr Steve Bax (a scout dad) learned of these plans and was able to let us know this was now being published as a policy.
We understand all of the Molesey councillors have expressed concern and plan to vote against it.
The actual council meeting papers discussed on 18th November stated “Any future redevelopment of the site would have to take into consideration the Scout Hut to the rear of the Vine Hall property and protection or re-provision of their current facilities.”
Until we know more about the actual plans or proposals and what that may mean for our Scout Group it is very difficult for us to comment. The terms of our lease on the Scout Hut give us various protections and notice periods, so in the short term there will be no change to 2nd Molesey’s situation.
We will keep all options open until a mutually satisfactory solution is found, whatever the next few months have in store for us.
Thank you to everyone for your strong and continued support.
We know you value the contribution which 2nd Molesey Scout Group has made to our community for nearly 100 years and we will fight to remain at the heart of Molesey.
We will keep you all informed.

The Scouts and Explorers had a brilliant time in Guernsey for our Summer Camp. The weather was mostly kind which made cycling and events much easier and enjoyable.
The campsite was well equipped and allowed for a very comfortable stay in Guernsey, we were spoilt with the facilities and the site.
We took part in Abseiling a 90 foot wall, Kayaking on the Sea, Coasteering with a fantastic view and a visit to the German Underground Hospital.
Cycling, which was the Scouts main form of travel took us to see many war fortifications along the way. An unexpected event was the Sand Racing at Vazon Beach which had motor bikes and car racing.
Thanks to a kind donation to the Scouts, we were able to fillet and cook large Pollock as a pre snack before dinner. The leaders were surprised at the eagerness to fillet a whole fish, and then eat it.
Thank you to the Scouts for their exceptional behaviour on the ferry and out and about in town. You really did the group proud.
And finally, these trips don’t happen without the Leaders – thank you!
Escapade 19 was a District event held at Walton Firs with attendance from all groups in the Esher District. I loose count of final numbers, but it was around 900 members.
A host of activities were available and the weather was glorious making it a great event.
Thank you to everyone that helps us with the Carnival this year. We had a great turn out for the parade and you all looked great!
