Great Bonfire Night for the Scouts

Goostrey Scouts’ annual bonfire held on the field next to the Scout Hut and Youth Centre on Sunday raised a fantastic £3,000 to help towards the cost of buying equipment and organising activities.

Group Scout Leader Neil Memmott said ” We were lucky that the weather was clear until after the end of the fireworks, so I was delighted by the turnout on the evening and the total raised.

“All the burgers and hotdogs barbecued by the team from Goostrey Scouts even ran out before the fireworks started, but fortunately Goostrey Guiding were also serving hot drinks and cakes, and Goostrey Pre-School’s marshmallow kebabs proved very popular. My thanks go to the organising team for the event, led by Executive members Tony Taylor, Mark Nelson and Colin Mottershead, and also to Ray Brown and sons for the use of the field and working to create the bonfire.”
