Irthlingborough Civic Service 2017

On Sunday 5th March the Group was invited to attend the Annual Mayor's Civic Service which was supported by many Local Civic Leaders and particularly Her Majesty's Lord Lieutenant for Northamptonshire, Mr.David Laing.

My thanks to the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts, Frederick Harris and Lyle Abbott who joined me the event at St.Peter's Church.

The Lord Lieutenant was very pleased to meet with the Young People and had a personal word with them all.

Well done to all the Young People for your smart presentation and impeccable behaviour in Church and to proudly parading our Colours.

Santa Claus came to Irthlingborough!

Hordes of local children visited the Grotto set up specially by Santa's Elves(Scouts!) and Helpers. Everyone received a gift as part of Scouting's contribution to this superb Town event.

Jolly Santa had a special word for each child.......

Whilst patiently waiting, the parents could enjoy a warming cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate provided by the Scout Active Support Unit.

Mrs. Christmas (Lisa) set up her stall to sell Christmas Illuminated Novelties with the whole effort raising funds for our Scouting activities.

An opportunity was also taken to present a cheque of £153.00 to the Royal British Legion as proceeds from the tea and coffee at the Remembrance Sunday event on Parsons Green.

The Scout TOTE was drawn for December as well as the winner of the Christmas Bonus Hamper.

A hearty "thank-you" to everyone for helping and supporting this event.
