LATEST NEWS :
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.
NEXT FUNDRAISING EVENTS:
28th August - Village Show - at the Scout Hut

My apologies for the mistake with question 49. I inadvertently missed out two letters. There were 4 correct entries and the drawn winner was Jan Wagstaff.
110 copies of the quiz were sold but I have paid out £10 to last month's winner and £2 for paper so £98 has gone to the fund.
The next quiz is about drinks, both alcoholic and not.

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

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 .
