No scouts this week as it half term.

Please see the information and request for help below.

We are looking for 3 or 4 scouts/explorers and parents (parents are needed as supervision to th scout) to assist with loading the wood onto our handcart, transporting it to the waiting minibus and trailer and removing it from the trailer after we have moved it to Mr Newport’s field (by the Lychgate). This will take place on Tuesday October 29th beginning at around 1030 at the primary school (further details will be given to any volunteers ahead of time). The work should take no more than a couple of hours to complete, less if we have more hands to help.
