I Grow Christmas Fayre

Scouting supported the Annual I-Grow Christmas Fayre in Irthlingborough High Street on Saturday 1st December. The Beavers raised money for their activities, Explorer Scouts sold 'glo-sticks' and fancy goods whilst the Scout Active Support Unit raised funds with a Tombola Stall - all the prizes being generously given by Parents and Supporters - to help offset losses from the cancellation of the District Scout Fireworks Display. Our thanks must go to all our Supporters. At this event, the cheque as proceeds from the Armistice Day Refreshments was presented to the Royal British Legion.

Armistice Day 2018

The Scout Group paraded at the Old Scouts Memorial, joined in with the United Service at St.Peters and laid a wreath at the Towns's War Memorial. Our 12 Old Scouts who made the Supreme Sacrifice for King and Country were remembered with a display of Crosses on Parsons Green. The Scout Active Support Unit provided refreshments at Parsons Green and the Townsfolk responded to enable a magnificent sum of £152.00 to be raised for the Royal British Legion. Sincere thanks to all......

Tom came along together with our Mayor, County and District Councillors and some of our Young People and Leaders. The visit was arranged to acknowledge our receiving a £6,300 grant from National Lottery which has been used to install new double-glazed windows and completely decorate the Headquarters building to improve the environment for our Young People. The National Lottery Representative, Oliver Savage, congratulated the Group on wisely using the Grant.
