Local Fundraising

This continues to be well supported. The ‘Cougar Catwalk’ generated £1000 on the night with other donations still coming in – thanks to Wendy Barlow and her team for all their work and to those who supported. By the time you read this, the “Not the Music Hall” production by Barford Drama Group will have happened

Grant Fundraising

We still need more help in this area to find possible sources of finance and then to make the applications. We will need to get the funds in place in the first half of next year to enable us to build in the summer holidays.

Scout Hut Grounds

Our new lease increased the area of the Scout Hut grounds to compensate for the extra space that will be taken up by the new Youth and Community Centre. Thanks to Ed Butlin, aided by Bill Smith and Roger Burton, for a splendid job of clearing the land and putting up a new fence.

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 .
