A FETE hosted by First Shottery Scout Group on Saturday, 8th May, raised over £500 for the general maintenance of the Scout headquarters situated off Albany Road, Stratford-upon-Avon.

Beavers, Cubs and Scouts all pitched in with parents and volunteers to stage a colourful day which included cakes, tombola, a plant stall with plants donated from Bordon Hill Nurseries, Stratford, bric-a-brac, a raffle and an appetising barbeque for good measure.

The fete is one of several fundraising events the Scouts hold throughout the year as the group relies on parent subscriptions and coffee mornings to help pay for the maintenance of the Scout HQ.

One of the most popular services the Scouts provide to the community is the annual Christmas card collection and distribution which serves Stratford, Shottery and Tiddington.

It’s also a very useful way to raise more funds through public contributions to the Scout group.

Organisers say they were very pleased with the outcome of last Saturday’s fete and because it was so well received by all those taking part, plans to stage a further event next year are already being made in the hope that the fete will become an annual fixture in the Scouting calendar.
