Liz Webb

I am very sad to report that one of our longest serving supporters died just after Christmas after a long illness.

Liz Webb started the 100 Club in 1990 and ran it for 29 years contributing well over £10,000 to the running of the Youth Groups.

Liz, Pete and their family moved to Barford in the 80s and threw themselves into village life. Pete also supported Scouts as Chairman and by obtaining grants for equipment. When their son David was paralysed in a motor bike accident they worked at supporting him back to health and living an independent life.

Liz and Pete then continued to help raising funds for Spinal Research. Liz moved into a smaller house in Warwick after Pete died, but still attended many village functions despite problems with mobility in recent years.

A lovely lady who will be much missed.

Local Fundraising

Barford Drama group contributed over £2,500 from “Not the Music Hall”. Thanks to Wendy Barlow and her team for a very enjoyable evening and a significant contribution to the funds. Our next fund-raising event will be a Quiz Night and Supper at the Memorial Hall on Saturday February 9th. See poster for more details.

Grant Fundraising

I am pleased to report that we now have some more help in this area and will be working to make applications to several grant giving bodies in 2019


We have £42,000 available for the Y&CC project at the start of 2019 with a magnificent £8,400 being raised in the last quarter of 2018.

The total amount raised since the start of the project is just over £60,000, out of which we have paid ca. £12,000 for the storage unit (incl. foundation and shelving units) and just under £6,000 in legal fees (lease), planning applications and architect's fees.

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

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 .
