DUCK HUNTING SEASON IS NOW CLOSED!!!
As the day grows longer and the weather warms it once again can only mean that our April Fun Day has been and gone once more. Firstly I would like to thank each and everyone of you who had something to do with helping us run the event, without you it simply would not be possible. A huge thank you must also go to all the local business’s who got into the spirit by buying a duck, and to those that also donated prizes to things like the raffle, we are very grateful!
Special mention however needs to be made of our Fund Raising Coordinator Kate, without her dedication and perseverance which knows no bounds. Sadly for us all Kate is now giving up her role with fund raising so this was, to all intents and purposes, her swan song or should I say Duck Song!
However what a send off it was raising for the Scout Group a huge…
We can also now confirm that we have reached our target for the refurbishment of the scout hall kitchen and that bar a couple of last little bits, work is now complete on this project
Another Target Reached!
We are also pleased to confirm that our hard working Fundraisers have achieved another target we set them enabling the construction of the Beaver play area and the replacement of worn or broken equipment. Hopefully this will be most noticeable to those that take the opportunity to camp with us over the coming months. A huge thank you to everyone who donated and helped in all the various activities that raised funds, even if that help was only visiting the car boot sales, it all helps!
The Hammock Hut was our major project of 2013 and is now currently being used by all the sections to enable the children to enjoy the outdoors more readily. We have yet to purchase the hammocks to use it as the name suggests but plans are in hand for that. A huge thank you to all who helped raise the money or contributed in time and materials to the cause, we really do appreciate it! Of course if you are interested in making a larger donation or you have an idea or equipment that you think we might be interested in, then please get in touch via the Contact Us page.
