May Fair – Date set

22 February 2017

The committee has agreed to hold a May Fair in order to raise funds for the group. This money is needed to finance the hut and to allow us to offer more activities in the future without raising subscriptions.

The May Fair will be held at the scout hut on 13 May from 11am to 3pm. Hopefully the weather will be nice and allow us to use much of the grounds outside as well as the hall space. If not, we will be able to set up tents and offer something of a camp experience.

The Fair is also intended to promote the scout group in the community generally and to try and recruit new members. We are looking for extra adult support (and this need not be uniformed or regular) as well as more youngsters. There is a wait list for Beavers (age 6-8) but there are vacancies in Cubs and Scouts (8-10½, 10½-14 respectively). Youngsters are offered a free, no-commitment trial for 4 weeks – so, if you are not sure, come along and try us out.

Section leaders will be asking parents/carers to make contributions for stalls, as we did with the cake sale on Whitleigh Green, and for volunteers to help out on the day. Please – the more the merrier.
