Santa back in Goostrey on Saturday evening!

Following Sunday’s Christmas Lights Switch-on in Goostrey at the Bog Bean, Santa was seen visiting the western parts of Goostrey near the Trading Post on Wednesday eve.  His sleigh is kindly sponsored by Holmes Chapel Rotary and supported by members of the 1st Goostrey Scout team – many thanks to all helpers as well as all those who kindly made donations to the cause.

Santa and his sleigh will be out in Goostrey again this Saturday 10th starting 5.30 – 6.00pm; route: (Main Road north side, Mill Lane, Woodlands, Buckbean Way, Brooklands Drive, Station Road, Main Road South to Long Shoot)

Tomas Lomax,  seen in his Beaver uniform, and younger brother Zack loved seeing Father Christmas Wednesday evening, as did many other children in Goostrey.

Massive sum for hut raised

Well done to the Scouts for organising a great bonfire and firework display again this year. The event raised a massive sum of £ 3,500 towards the final construction works.
“We are still fundraising to enable us to complete the building works – having raised over £200,000 in 2 years we are on the final stretch and trying to raise the final £50,000 to complete the work…We really appreciate the support that we get from our community – we hope you agree the new scout hut is looking wonderful and a significant improvement on our last hut!”
If you would like to make a donation – these can be made directly to the Scout Hut and Youth Centre at:
