The Hideaway

The Hideaway Supporters’ Council exists to support the work of Christ Church, Walmsley, Scouting and Guiding groups and to maintain, and develop the Hideaway building.

The Hideaway is a modern, purpose-designed building, which is currently the Headquarters, for 7 Scouting and Guiding groups:-

Dunscar District

14th & 76th Bolton

58th Bolton


78th Bolton Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The Building is also the home of Egerton Playgroup, Stargaze Dance Academy, Karate Club, Walmsley Junior Church and the Church Flower Circle.


The Hideaway is available for hire for outside use for parties etc. To book contact Kay Cheetham on 01204 279344

Get involved.

The Supporters’ Council meets approximately every 2 months, usually on a Tuesday evening at 7.30, at Dunscar Conservative Club. Anyone with an interest in the work of the Scout and Guide groups or anything related to the running of the Hideaway is welcome to attend.

At the moment most members of the Supporters’ Council are leaders of the uniformed organisations, parents and other interested persons. We can always do with extra help in arranging upkeep, planning social activities and generally supporting the work of the Hideaway.

The current officers are:-

  • Chairperson – Rev. Chris Jamieson
