New minibus news!
We are pleased to announce that we have been successful in getting full funding for a second minibus to work alongside Chief, Polly & Rosie. A Fiat Ducato 17 seater minibus, with accessible tail lift. This new vehicle is brand new and currently being built, with a delivery date estimated for the end of 2017. Bookings can be made, however we can't confirm any enquiries until the vehicle is delivered. The naming of the vehicle and sponsorship of the graphics (similar to Chief), will follow in due course.
Thank you to everyone who came along and supported our family BBQ and AGM 2017. It was a lovely evening and it was great to awards being made to all the young people and some of the not so young! Congratulations to them all.

New Year = New Adventures
As we start a new year in 2017, we look back at the many things we did in 2016 and wonder how we can improve on it, but that is exactly what we aim to do. All our volunteer adults work hard to provide the best experience for our youth members and are continually looking to try new things, improve existing things and for more adult to join our successful team; why not get involved?

Second hand uniforms and group polo shirts
We often have second hand uniforms returned as the young people grow out of them. We'd be pleased to see them passed and used by future members. They are therefore available free of charge to anyone who can use them. For details of what we currently have available, download the list available from this link: Uniform/polo shirt stocks
