Due to the Government Directives now in place to protect our community from the Covid-19 virus we will not be able to hold our Annual Scouts Bonfire. We will be back next year.

We offer: hot & cold drinks, baked potatoes with different fillings, roast chestnuts, treacle toffee, toffee apples, and our famous burgers & hotdogs. There was also the chance to buy flash bands and novelties. People listened to own own PA system – David Hayes entertained and gave us useful info as the night proceeded.
