Featured Calendar: 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scouts

Featured Calendar: 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scouts

Each month, we feature one of our customers using The Events Calendar products. This month, we’ve chosen to showcase the 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scouts. They are one of the largest and most active Sea Scout groups in the United Kingdom, offering challenge and adventure to over 250 young people aged 6 to 25 and beyond.

They are recognized by the Royal Navy as one of the country’s top 100 Sea Scout groups and accredited by the Royal Yachting Association and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Training Centres, training young people new skills for life throughout the year.

Plus, they are part of our nonprofit program. We grant free Events Calendar Pro licenses to qualifying nonprofit organizations. Learn more about the nonprofit program here.

We learned about the 3rd Chalkwell Bay Sea Scout’s use of our products on social media. Here’s what they had to say about their experience:
