Welcome to Paddles Blazing Activity Support Unit a canoeing section within Warrington East District Scouts.

Our Mission

To develop water safety and canoe skills in our young members. Utilising the skills achieved in their programmed development in the Scout Association.

We use the Canoe England awards. Our regular paddling sessions are held on the Bridgewater Canal.  As in 2010, 11, 12, 13 14, 15 & 16 these are at Warrington District‘s Campsite and the 25th Warrington East Scout Group HQ., behind St Wilfrid's Church, Church Lane, Grappenhall, Warrington.

Parents are welcome to join in the activities. Outside of the Bridgewater Canal session specific training days are occasionally organised along with a few river trips for those members who are progressing skills wise.  Whilst we are Warrington east based we have strong links to Warrington West District and their scouts join the ASU for canoeing activities.
