Bonfire Night

Remember remember the fifth of November, Gunpowder, treason and plot. I see no reason why gunpowder, treason, Should ever be forgot...

We deffinately didnt forget on Monday 5th with over 150 people attending the bonfire night at the Ranche. It was a good evening spent enjoying the fireworks and celebrating bonfire night with a bang, all topped off with a BBQ!! With a fantastic offering of cakes, tea coffee and tuck the evening helped raise some much needed funds for our Scout Group.

It was a fantastic evening with a great turnout, with parents, siblings, families  and a big thanks to all that helped out and made the evening a success!

New Toilets

Saturday 13th work started on the new toilets at the Ranche. We started off by ripping out the old toilets that had resided in the Ranche for over 25 years, this has now left an empty shell ready for the builders.

The money to carry this out has been donated by Trafford Housing trust and will help make our facilities a better environment for the young people in the group

Thanks to Pete M., Alan, Nick, Fish, Mr Anderson & Mr Sterlini.
