2014 has been one busy year for 27th Norwich (New Costessey) Scout Group!
Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to secure a substantial grant from the Norfolk Environmental Waste Services (NEWS) site at Longwater thanks to the help of one of our Beaver Scout parents. This much needed money allowed us to not only repair the desperately dilapidated roof, but also tend to other repairs and update the kitchen and bathroom facilities to a top notch, 21st century standard.
However, as we all know, there is always more to be done! Stepmember saw our Group Scout Leader, Alan, and Beaver Scout Leader, James, give a presentation to the staff at Sainsbury’s Longwater. As a result, their “Better Place to Work” panel voted our group as the store’s charity partner for the year. This means not only financial but physical hands-on support for the group to continue improving the services we provide to the young people of Costessey and the wider community.
Not only has all this work been going on but the group has been preparing for (hopefully) one of our biggest events of the year, our Big 80th Birthday Bash!
27th Norwich (New Costessey) Scout Group was first registered way back on 4th July 1934 and to celebrate this milestone in the group’s history we’re inviting all former members and their families to come along and help celebrate.
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate our past, present and future by taking part in making our memory wall, sharing your stories of your time with the group and taking part in fun scouting activites from across the years, all whilst enjoying a nice cup of tea and slice of cake!
Our Big 80th Birthday Bash will be held on Sunday 30th November 2014 from 2pm at our Scout Hall, Gunton Lane, New Costessey, NR5 0AE (see the map if you’re not sure).
