Coming Up

We have a stall at the Town Christmas Market on Friday 1st December (5pm - 8pm). We will be selling hot roast chestnuts; homemade cakes. We may also run the same game from the Community Fair if we have space and we'll have Scout Christmas Post stamps and a post box.

The Scouts' Christmas Post will run from 1st - 19th December with stamps and boxes in several local locations. This year we have help from Raw (in the Market Place); Bingham Library; Bingham Town Council office; Bingham Bowls Club (evenings only); Select Convenience Store, Bowland Road; the WI Hut (Thursday mornings only - stamps only, no box); and Barnardo's, Eaton Place (box only, no stamps). Last collection for cards for Radcliffe and Saxondale will be at 4pm on Fri 15th Dec (Thurs eve at the Bowls Club & 12 noon Fri at the Town Council). The last collection for Bingham cards will be 5pm on Tues 19th Dec (Mon eve at the Bowls Club and 12 noon Mon at the Town Council). Delivery (to Bingham and Radcliffe addresses) by Christmas Eve.


Buy a Brick - we continue to sell “virtual” bricks as part of our building fund efforts. To buy a brick (or several bricks) you can download and print off a form here, or you can complete an online application here (we do not yet have a facility for making online payments). If you are a tax payer and are happy for us to collect Gift Aid on your donation please also complete and sign the Gift Aid declaration on the application form. This will enable us to claim, from the taxman, 25p extra for each £1 donated.

As always we are on the lookout to recruit additional help. We need uniformed leaders in most sections, also less regular helpers and people to assist with recording keeping, administration and finances in some of the sections. Now is a good time to volunteer, you'll not be thrown in at the deep end and there's enough cover in all of the sections be be able to give you lots of help and guidance. Think about volunteering now while we are not desperate but would still be delighted to have you join us.

We also need more volunteers on the Group Executive committee and ocassional help with fundraising. Please get in touch and have a chat.

Perhaps becoming a volunteer for one of these roles would suit you? Don't forget that if a parent volunteers for a full leadership role (and sticks at it for a while) we guarantee a place in the Group for any of their children (they don't necessarily have to be in the same section - ie a parent could volunteer with Cubs or Scouts and their child could join the Beavers).

If you don't fancy helping us maybe you know someone else who might? Volunteers don't have to be parents, just 18 or more.
