Scout Hut Proms at the Church was enjoyed by all who attended and raised over £1200 for the new building project. Thanks to the Church for hosting it, the JPC for opening up the parking and Robin Hammond for organising it.

We now have the signed lease in our possession, the plans are com-plete and we hope to get Planning Permission by the end of December. We need to send these final plans out to get 3 competitive quotes and then all the preliminary work will have been completed so that in 2018 we will be able to press on with major grant applications.

Funding Update

We now have just over £34,350 raised towards the building project.

A significant amount but still a long way to go to the estimated cost of £250,000 - £350,000. .


Big Christmas Breakfast – Sunday 17th December – Barford Memorial Hall

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

100 copies of the quiz were sold so £100 goes into the fund.

There were no all correct entries but two people got one wrong so their names went into the hat and Kirsty Healy was the winner.

Good luck with the next quiz which is about things you might find in a hardware shop.

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. We have spaces in the ‘100’ club that raises vital funds but also need occasional help with maintaining the building and grounds. 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 .
