ON behalf of the organisers, we would like to sincerely thank all those people who donated books and other items for our annual book sale and to those who came along to the event and supported us.
A tremendous amount of hard work is undertaken by all the organisers and helpers to ensure that this event is successful, and I would like to express my personal thanks to all those involved.
This year we raised in excess of £5,000, which is a fantastic achievement.
The funds will be used to maintain the district headquarters and to continue to support the promotion of scouting and its activities in the local community.
Plans are already under way for next year’s event, which will take place during half term in February 2014.
