Perfect weather, a thriving scouting community and village support all helped make the Bishopsteignton Scout Group Fun Day a huge success.
The Community Centre was buzzing from start to finish with BBQ, games, raffle, stalls, delicious cakes and lots more. Happy, smiling faces were in abundance.
This year the Scout Group was raising money towards the much needed scout hut renovation project. The generosity and support from local businesses, parents and parishioners resulted in the group raising funds of just over a whopping £1000!
This was all topped off a few days later with a much welcomed, generous donation of £250 from the ladies of the Teignmouth Tangent Club.
Group Chairman, Elaine Cawthraw said, “I’m overwhelmed by the support we’ve received. Scouting provides wonderful opportunities for all children and young people to reach their full potential by developing skills. It’s lovely to see so many people supporting the Group and acknowledging how vital the existence of a scout group is to our village”.
The work on the scout hut will take place during the school summer holidays and if you are to help with project management or are good at DIY and would like to help us, the Group would love to hear from you.
