Unfortunately Liz Webb, after 30 years work that has raised over £10, 000, can no longer run the 100 Club and Kate Robinson has taken this on. The Club is fully subscribed so we are extending the membership to form a 200 club. In the June draw, Hilary Maynard won the first prize of £100 and Tracy Atkin and Rita Hunt each received £25 as runners up. If you would like to support the 200 club please contact Kate on 624026, any of the youth leaders or the BSGSG committee. Cost is still only £12 a year and draws are quarterly.

Wellesbourne Lions are organising a Lion Racing Night at the Memorial Hall on Friday 14th September in aid of BSGSG..

Our Architect has put out a detailed specification of the building to several companies to put in quotes by the end of June. We hope this will be the last element in place so we can start to apply for major grants.

We have a long lease on the land, Charity status, evidence of local need and we have raised a significant amount from local funding. Unfortunately illness will prevent the person who has been leading the grant funding team from taking an active role in the next few months.

There are many grants available and with our mixture of youth groups and community users we are well placed. We need to identify the funders, tailor the business plan and make the application. Is there anyone who can offer some assistance?

The next BSGSG meeting is Monday 2nd July at 8 pm in the Scout Hut.

Everyone is welcome.

The more "likes" we get, the stronger our position will be when applying for grants!

Volunteer leaders at 1st Barford Scout Group are looking for more adults to join them. You can choose the age group of the children that you would enjoy most to help with - Beavers are 6 to 8 years old, Cubs are aged 8 to 10 or Scouts aged 10 to 13 no previous experience is necessary as you will be working alongside the existing leadership team. Each age group provides very exciting opportunities for the children and presents its own challenges and rewards.

The role will only take one evening each week plus occasional meetings to plan the term’s activity. An ability to work with young people is required; all sections include both boys and girls. Now is the time for you to volunteer to become a helper, so get in touch with the Group Scout Leader, Martin Russell on 07882 851768 or via

Barford Scouts Supporters Group

This group runs the Scout hut on Wasperton Lane and supports the uniformed Youth groups.

If you would like to help, either by joining the 100 club (£12 p.a.), or by doing some occasional gardening, please contact the chairman – Rod Scott on 624434 .
