As part of Winton House’s annual Spring Family Open Day, this year Pencaitland Scouts were out in force to help set up and participate in an assault course within the walled garden.
Winton House threw its doors open for the annual Family Spring Open Day, with funds being raised for Maggie’s Centres, the Scottish cancer care charity, and Scotland’s Gardens. As well as the scout activities there was plenty of entertainment for families and children — from face painting and a bouncy castle to the Winton Combat Challenge, miniature hovercraft and more. There was also delicious homemade soup, sandwiches and cakes at Cafe Winton with the funds going to the supported causes.
All those taking part in the Scouts’ Assault Course were asked to make a voluntary contribution to raise funds for Pencaitland’s new scout troupe which was only recently revived late last year after a seven year hiatus.
Below we’ve got a selection of photos from the day…
