LATEST NEWS :
We have started work to prepare for the replacement Storage Building.
A new fence has been erected and we have started to empty and dismantle one garage. The Planning permission process is moving on and we hope will be completed in June.
Thanks to Wellesbourne Lions for organising a very enjoyable ‘Lion Racing Night’ in the Memorial Hall in May. Proceeds of over £500 have been donated to the Y & CC project.
At the recent AGM we were asked if we could run a regular monthly Adults-only bingo over the winter months. We can do it – if there are enough adults (about 20 needed) - let me know if you would come along.
NEXT FUNDRAISING EVENTS:

BARFORD SCOUT GROUP :
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
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
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 .
