Barn Dance 17th November
Our main fundraiser of the year is now well and truely on the way and we are selling tickets.
The event is a barn dance at the village hall on Saturday 17th November and is aimed at families of all ages. Tickets are £10 per person or a bargain price of £30 for a whole family and includes supper.
Tickets are available from Kim Key or Masons.
Please do come along, it promises to be a great evening, everyone will enjoy it and we will raise a great sum for the scout group towards equipment and the new headquarters. Please also spread the word to friends and family, the more people we have, the more fun it will be and the greater the profit.

We Need Your Help
The 1st Cheddington Scout Group are looking for a some people to form a Fundraising Group, you could be a parent, a grandparent or just someone that would like to donate some time to your local Scout community. Are you good at coming up with ideas for events? Are you good at organising? Have you got time on your hands? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” you could just be the person we are looking for.
Each year the group needs to raise funds to:-
Support the running costs of their Scout Headquarters in Station Road.
Replace and purchase new equipment.
The current building is almost at the end of its life & over the next 3 years we would love to be able to raise enough money to eventually replace it!
If you would like to be part of this exciting project & would consider joining our fundraising group we would love to hear from you. If you feel you would not be able to make this level of commitment but would be available to help at some of the events we organise we would also love to hear from you.
