There is a slight change to this Friday night’s Scout Troop programme, which will now be a night hike from Hadleigh Castle.
To help raise money for the repair works on the EOD, a tuck shop will now be run by the Explorers on weekends and after Church Parades, there will be a choice of canned drinks, cakes and sweets which will thrill your tastebuds! Continue reading Tuck Shop

This marks the 27th Anniversary of the death of Peter Royal. Peter was one of the pre-war and post war members of the Group, and as some of you know bequeathed a legacy to the Group.
Peter has very few living relatives so the Group always remembers Peter at this time of the year with a service at New Road Church.
It would be nice to see all the Group’s members make a special effort to attend this service to show their appreciation for Peter’s life, the work he did with the 3rd C.B. and for his generosity to the Group. Following the service flowers will be laid at Peter’s grave.
Parents and friends are most welcome to come and join in the service, which will be held at New Road Methodist Church New Road Leigh commencing at 1100 hrs. Car parking is available under the railway bridge.
It is expected that all uniform members make the effort to attend. Meet at the Den in full uniform at 1030 hours. We shall be back at the Den 1215 hours.
On Sunday the 23rd March we will be having a curry evening to raise money to pay for a repair on our RIB Grafton at the Tandoori Parlor, 61-63 Heart Road, Thundersley, SS7 3PB. We have done similar dinner fundraisers in previous years and it has always been successful and we hope to replicate that and you will be able to come and make it and enjoyable evening. The money will go towards extending Grafton’s drive shaft and left in its current state leaves it out of action for boating purposes and is a wasted resource. Continue reading Curry Night – Sunday 23rd March

Continue reading Frank Bentley Cup – Saturday 11th January
