Hello all,

Wantage Model Railway Show – Saturday 18th April 2015

As you may be aware, this year Grove Scout Group is hosting the Wantage Model Railway Show in Old Mill Hall Grove. This is a valuable fund raiser for the group and as well as hosting the event we are providing hot and cold refreshments throughout the day.

The event is on Saturday 18th April and runs from 10AM to 4.30PM. Entrance to the event is £3.50 for adults, £2 for children and £3 for concessions.

There will be 12 layouts on show including a hands on children’s layout, some trade stall and demonstrations – please see the flyer!

It would be great to see many Grove Scouters there so please consider attending or maybe pass the flyer to a relative who may be interested.

We are also looking for some adult volunteers and uniformed Scouts to help us on the day.

(Whilst we would love to see Beavers and Cubs there, the roles we need help with will not be suitable for them this time).

Please can you give some thought as to whether you would be able to spare 2 hours and do a shift in the kitchen with our fund raising team?

We are also looking for a bit of help on Friday evening to get tables and chairs out and set up and some further help on the Saturday morning and evening to complete set up and pack away.

We are also looking for some bakers who can bake a cake or two for us to sell!!!

If you feel you can help – please get in touch with me and let me know what time / role suits you best and I will let you know more details.
