Today’s Inclement Weather

Hi Everyone,
Due to the appalling weather and what is forecast tonight, we have decided to post pone the bbq until Thursday. Same plan still stands,
6:30pm at the hall.

The Scout Troop will provide the sausages, sauce, bread and icy poles.

TIME: from 6.30pm
BRING: chairs/picnic rug, drinks, glasses and something to share ie salad, chips, fruit etc.

If we had access to the hall all would be good… but we don’t so plan “B” it is!

Sorry for the late notice.
