Chair’s Corner

What a fabulous carnival weekend we had! The weather was perfect and people came out in their droves after two years of absence. The floats were wonderful and I know from experience how hard and time consuming the task is. Thank you to all concerned and I am sure that more detailed accounts will be seen within the section reports. We do not know yet how much was raised for the scout group but whatever it is it will be a welcome boost to our finances as we are going to need it with our plans to refurbish the two halls and forever increasing costs of running the group.

The parish hall also had a fabulous weekend for the Platinum Jubilee. It attracted many local (and perhaps not so local) people and a good long weekend was had by all. The Copythorne Parish Hall Committee and Parish Council are to be congratulated on the events put on over the weekend – we all thank you.

As the summer progresses, thoughts turned to summer holidays and camps. The leaders will have a break for August (unless they are doing a camp for their section) and re-charge their batteries for a new term in September – it will be here soon enough. Have a good summer everybody and thank you again for all your support.
