Race Night 2014 – Another Huge Success!

Last Saturday saw the latest in our infamous race nights at the 79th HQ and we are pleased to say we were well supported as always with nearly 100 tickets sold for the event. The evening was a huge success raising over £600 for the group which will be put towards the new Kitchen and there was also some refreshments provided by the Scouts going to the world Jamboree and on Project Africa who also managed to raise over £100 for their trips.

Thank you to Kate for organising it with help from the Dambuster Beavers and the Excalibur Explorers.

Fun Day 2014 – Update

Plans are advancing rapidly and we have even more stalls and activities booked, very soon we will be asking parents for donations for the various stalls as well as help with manning them. There are a few spaces left so if you want to run a stall of your own please contact Kate as soon as you can, her number is further on in this article.

Planning is now well advanced for our popular annual Fun Day which this year will take place on Saturday 26th April. The gates open at 12.00 mid day and our intention is to continue until 14.30 but as anyone who has been to this event in previous years will tell you it is better to come early!

Funday 2013


If last year is anything to go by we will be especially busy regardless of the weather, although it would be nice if it stayed dry for once! Currently we have plans for:

Climbing Wall 
Crazy golf
Afternoon tea and Cake Stall
Jam Jar Tombola

As well as the normal climbing we are looking for families to take part in a Sponsored Climb where we are hoping to climb the height of Scafell Pike! So if your family is up for the challenge speak to your section leader and start getting sponsored!

There is more space available though please get in touch with Kate to secure a place. This year we are also offering a special rate to other Scout groups, Guides, Brownies and local charities as we seek to involve even more people in our community. These stalls have to be pre booked and paid for in advance and are offered at a Special Rate of £8.00.
Details can be obtained by calling Kate on 07846 833681.
