Fund Raising
A very enjoyable quiz was held on 17th February, organised by Hilary Maynard and her team. Congratulations to Hilary whose monthly quizzes have raised £2,675.50 since starting in February 2016 – an average of well over £100.00 each month!

Total fund raising is now over £40,000.

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 .
