Wilson and Scott have a proud and long association with 1st Chertsey Scouts, supporting them through their Group Scout Leader David Moore who in his daytime role is Fleet and Logistics Manager for the company. David had already been active in the Scouting movement in Chertsey for some years when in 1982 he joined Wilson and Scott after leaving school. Starting out as a workshop fitter, David’s role with the company has progressed to senior management level, paralleling his progression through the Scouting movement to his current role as Group Scout Leader. Throughout David’s time with the company we have facilitated the loan to 1st Chertsey Scouts of vehicles enabling them to attend numerous Scouting events and camps around the country. During the last 20 years we have also maintained their minibus, providing our own workshop facilities for this to ensure the vehicle’s continued roadworthiness and safety.
The newly opened 1st Chertsey Scout HQ in Staines Lane is a tribute to the hard work that David and others have brought to the project. We are very proud to have been able to play a role in this by supplying labour, plant and materials for the installation of car park and associated road markings as well as the painting of the main and disabled access ramps to the building. We look forward to our continued association with 1st Chertsey Scouts in the years to come.
