As many of you will know we had a big problem over the summer with Rats in our storage area, this has forced us to dispose of most of our camping equipment.
So we’re on the fundraising train to replace the contaminated kit. The local Asda has offered us community funding via the plastic token scheme. If you are shopping in Asda Wolstanton please think of us and ask for some tokens to put into our box in the store.

The theme for the event is ‘Promise to Fulfilment’. This is looking at the past, looking how things were, looking at the future and what it holds for us all in Scouting.  We have also changed some elements of the ceremony around. Here is the …
