Bottles needed!

Can you please start saving 2ltr plastic drinks bottles for us?

We are going to make as many poppies as we can out of them for Midsomer Norton’s Remembrance Sunday parade on Sunday 13th Nov.

There are two green plastic boxes outside of the scout hall if you have any to drop in.

On Monday the 24th of October, during half term, we will be running a drop in day for all Beavers, Cubs and Scouts to make as many as we can between 10am and 3pm.

This is what they’ll look like (but all red and black of course)
