Camping Gear Stolen – Any Information?


Leaders went to the Groups lock up today to check equipment in preparation for a camp this weekend to discover everything had been stolen. Items stolen include a large number of tents, billy cans, cast iron frying pans, dozens & dozens of utensils, axes, tilly lamps, dutch ovens, tea pots, kettles, mallets, etc.

It took years and a lot of fundraising for the group to accumulate this and it is devastating that is has all been stolen. Please contact Essex Police if you become aware of any equipment like this for sale suspiciously.

Easter Egg Hunt & Group Information Morning


Easter Egg Hunt & Group Information Morning

I am sorry to tell you all the the Easter Egg Hunt planned for this Sunday is cancelled.

There were only 10 families, who wanted to take part out of the 60 Families in the group.
We had decided that we needed 20+ families to make the event viable.

We intend to have a group BBQ in June so we may well do a Treasure Hunt there.

I hope you all have a good Easter, and if anyone wants to join us at Bingo on Saturday Evening.  Please get in touch ASAP
