Thanks to Christmas Cracker participants, your donations at the food stop added up to £500 and we added another £700 to bring the total to £1200 required for new equipment.
The Group now has 120 young people involved with two Beaver Scout Colonies, two Cub Scout Packs, a Scout Troop and an Explorer Scout Unit. The Group has started archery this autumn and has bought some equipment so that we can start indoors during the winter. In the spring we hope to purchase some bosses (targets) for use outside. The other big project for the New Year will be the establishment of a second Scout Troop to cater for the growing numbers.
