Thank you to all the families that came to support his years AGM! Due to the rain we had to change plans of outdoor relay games to a beetledrive indoors. It's great to start a new year with all key committee roles filled and we had another parent offer to join the committee
A spectacle of more than 40 classic cars competed in a grand odyssey of a rally which began at Cape Trafalgar in Spain. Lots of Scouts turned up to show support in welcoming the cars as they passed through Blandford.
This year we were in The Crown garden which was great. Lots of visitors to the stall. We had the biggest tombola we have ever seen!
Thank you to all adults and Scouts that helped out throughout the day!
Due to no District plans to celebrate St George's day we put on a great event at the hut. 5 different activity bases and hot dog snack! 86 Scouts attended the event along with some Beavers from Winterborne Whitechurch.
Blandford Town Council invited us to serve refreshments for their Easter Egg Hunt event during the Easter holidays.
Big thank you to the Beavers that helped at this event, it was a lovely couple of hours in the Woodhouse Gardens!
