After 12 years our Brownie leader is going to retire so we need a new leader to take this on. It is a big commitment for one – but if there are 2 or 3 people who would like to work together it is rewarding and can even be enjoyable. There is a thriving Brownie unit of about 14 girls and plenty of equipment. Uniforms and training are provided. Anyone who thinks they might be able to help please contact Hilary Burvill (01926 624950). The Brownies in Barford have a long history and it would be a great shame if we let them lapse.
“After running 1st Barford Brownies for many years, it is now time for someone else to take on the girls. I have really enjoyed the challenge of giving our youngsters the opportunity to blossom, learn new skills and become more independent. Should anyone out there be interested in taking on this fun and rewarding role please contact me. As an extra incentive, any new leader would have the potential opportunity to work in a brand new community hall, once it has been built!”

The more "likes" we get, the stronger our position will be when applying for grants!

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 .
