Christmas Street Fayre – 8th December 2013
Halesworth Scout Group will be holding a stall at the Christmas
Street Fayre again this year. Please support us by donating
a Tombola prize (maybe a BOGOF where you don’t need
the second item?) If every Explorer, Scout, Cub and Beaver
could donate just one item (more if you like!) it will really
help us to raise some much needed funds for YOUR group. Please
place any donations in the collection box at the Scout HQ,
and Beavers will be decorating Jam jars, so if you have any
empty glass jars with lids (clean and with labels removed
please) they would be gratefully received. These will also
be Tombola prizes, so if you have any goodies we can fill
them with, or if you could send them filled even better!!!!
(eg. sweeties, small toys, or anything that will fit in the
jar that you think somebody may want to win!)
more thing ….. please, please, please, if you can spare
an hour to help on the stall, there will be a rota up in the
entrance to the HQ soon.
you for your support
Mail Delivery 2013
Halesworth and Holton
The Halesworth Lions has passed on the Christmas Mail delivery
to Halesworth Scout Group giving us the chance to serve our
community and to earn much needed funds.
The time table is:
18 to 20 November - Post Boxes delivered to the shops.
14 December – Post Boxes will be collected.
14/15 December – Final and Major sort of post.
16 to 21– Delivery of post.
collection of post and donations (possibly on a daily basis).
weekly sort, possibly at weekends or during the week into
the major eight area that have been used by the Lions.
final sort on 14 and 15 and allocating post into rounds.
to 21 delivery of post.
I have not got a final list of shops but I will let you know
as soon as I know myself.
Volunteers can be Explorer Scouts, Scouts, (Cub Scouts and
Beavers are welcome to help but they must be accompanied by
an adult), parents, grandparents, friends of scouting and
leaders (but don’t let us rely on leaders for leading
fund raising all the time). If anyone would like to step forward
and help in the co-ordination of this project I would be really
So can you let me know:
When you can deliver post in the week before Christmas and
the streets you are able to do.
you can collect from the post boxes and the days that you
can do this
When you are able to do the weekly mini-sorts
When you are available to do the Final Sort
This sounds a lot of work, and it is. I have had a number
of volunteers that shows that we can make this a successful
event. If every family helps then the work per person in minimal,
conceptually we have four times the manpower of the Lions.
And don’t forget to rope others in to help. I am!
This is a wonderful project and as well as boosting our fund
it will present a high profile of Scouting to the community.
