Planning permission has been granted for the new Storage building and the order placed. We have removed one garage – thanks to help from a community group of Jaguar/Land Rover employees. We need to clear round the second garage to establish where the present base is and prepare extra ground for the extended base for the new building. We have a working party planned for mid July, but may need more assistance from Parents and Supporters in August. Contact me if you are able to help.

Thanks to all who helped at Barford School Fete in July – both those on the stall and those who supported by buying the Jigsaws, books, jam, stocks and Draw tickets.

Over £2000 has been raised for the Youth & Community Centre funds by the monthly Quizzes (see below) – a fantastic result – well done Hilary Maynard.

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 .
