from David Giles, 1st Goostrey Scouts:
A very big thank you to Tony Taylor and also to everyone who helped at the Bonfire and Fireworks event last night, it was a superb village event and well worth the effort. This event raised £4000 towards the Scout Hut and Youth Centre and brings our total build fund to almost £75,000.
We also received news yesterday that we are to receive a grant of £5000 from Cheshire East Council towards the build costs, when this money is in the bank; we shall have a total of £80,000 in the fund.
My apology that I did not make an announcement thanking everyone over the PA last night, it blew-up just before the end of the fireworks! Thank you for helping to get us closer to our dream of a new Scout Hut and Youth Centre for the young people of Goostrey and WELL DONE TONY and everyone who helped last night.
Yours in Scouting, David Giles
