Grant to 1st Ivinghoe and Pitstone Scouts

The parish council were delighted to assist the 1st Ivinghoe and Pitstone Scouts with a grant of £1,800 towards their air riffle project.

Two scouting leaders have completed training qualifications that enable them to instruct in the use of air rifles and to run formal training for Youth Shooting Efficiency courses.   Thanks to the grant, the group now has the equipment/storage/safety equipment to allow them to run shooting sessions at both scouting events and local community events, and also to run the formal courses.

The air rifles had their debut outing at the Ivinghoe fete. Supervised groups were organised over the afternoon, and this gave lots of people, young and old, the opportunity to have a go.

If you are part of a local community organisation that benefits the residents of Pitstone, and that group would benefit from financial assistance towards a project, please get in touch with the parish council to find out more information about our community group grant scheme.   Email: or Telephone 01296 767261.
