I’d like to Thank everyone for their help and efforts with this event. Whether it was setting up, on a stall or providing something it all helped.
The weather was great and I think this really did help increase the totals.
We increased to 2000 ducks in 2012 and this the first time we have sold out and could of sold another 100+.
The final total profit for the Group is £2654.
The group has a new leader! Sam Brown, has volunteered to step up and help the group, originally with the Cub section although has been helping out across the sections whenever the need arises! It’s fabulous to welcome him to the group and we hope he enjoys it as much as the rest of us.

A huge thank you to all that helped at any point during our Fireworks night. Having lots of people around for the set up and clearing away made such a difference, plus the event ran very smoothly.
Thank you to all that came to support our event, despite the father horrible British weather, and help to make it a huge success.
We are hoping to be able to make this an annual event for the Scouts and the village, so watch this space for future dates!
Thank you to the small but select few young people and leaders from various sections who turned up in uniform for our parade to help celebrate the harvest festival. I’m pleased to say that there were no breakages associated with the flag bearers this year, which was a relief to all concerned.
