Scouts Reindeer Fun!

Date: 13th Nov 2017 Author: Scout Websites

1st Farnsfield Scout Troop have been busy having fun learning new skills and exploring their creative sides by making Christmas Reindeer out of locally foraged small logs and sticks. The Scout Troop will be selling their reindeer to raise money this December for the charity Newman Holiday Trust. A charity which provides holidays for over 120 disabled children a year, in various locations around the UK. These lovely Reindeer, perfect as a centrepiece beneath the Christmas tree or next to the fireplace or front door. If you are interested in purchasing one get in contact with the Scouts at

The older Scouts have worked hard over the last few years since joining Scouts, towards earning the prestigious Chief Scout Gold Award, the highest award in the age group, before some of them will be moving on to a brand newly formed Explorer unit in the New Year. Current Scout leader Diane Waller, has gratefully volunteered her spare time and energy over the last four years in Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and will be sadly missed leaving the Scout Troop at the end of the year. This will leave a vacancy in which has yet to be filled for the next new leader to take up the volunteer position for the Scout Troop to continue into 2018.

The scout group are always looking for additional adults to support the adventure. If you are interested in getting involved, please contact Group Scout Leader Chris Blockley, on 07779324341.

Scouting provides a second family to lots of young people. It’s a safe place where they can aspire and grow.'
