May Ball
May 20 @ 18:30 – 23:59

The return of our incredibly popular May Ball on board HQS Wilton, The Essex Yacht Club, raising funds for the Group as well as an excuse for a good social event.

The evening will commence with a reception at 18.30 in the upper saloon, guests will then sit down to a delicious 3 course dinner, followed by a fun fundraising auction. Finally, there will be a raffle, and dancing to our resident DJ, Marcus Dean, to complete the evening. The dress code is Black Tie / Cocktail dress, with carriages at 1am. This will be a popular evening – our last ball in 2015 sold out very quickly, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

Tickets cost £25 per head, and all proceeds will go straight back into 3rd CB to support projects including the new boating centre, new sailing dinghies and keeping Scouting affordable at The Den. They are on sale from now until 7 May.

To book your place, please print and return the slip below with your payment as soon as possible to The Den or directly to Nicky. For any queries, offers of help, or raffle & auction donations please get in touch with Nicky at Events@3rdCB.org.uk.

St Clements May Fair
May 29 @ 10:00 – 16:00

A well established and central part of the life of Leigh-on–Sea, St. Clement’s May Fair is held in Leigh Library Gardens on the second Bank Holiday Monday in May.

3rdCB will have some stalls and games there manned by the Scouts raising funds for the Group, so please come along and see us.

The gardens buzz with a range of attractive crafts, gifts and information stalls. There’s a barbecue, tea tent and other refreshments. Bouncy castles and other amusements for the children, a lovely day all round.

Weather permitting this is a day when the tower of St. Clement’s is open. It’s a long way up but so worth the climb to see the incredible view.
