A year of Scouting culminated in a Christmas cracker of a Carol Service last week.
The hut was packed with parents, Explorers, Scouts and Cubs, all singing their hearts out. Meanwhile, our Beavers did themselves proud with a great nativity play.
Looking back on the past 12 months at 1st Broughton Gifford & Holt Scout Group, Kaa says: “Many thanks to all parents and helpers for making 2015 such a great year. The hall is looking the best it’s been in years, all the tents are finally renewed and we’ve got some great memories of camps, expeditions, slapping paint around and cooking chips!
We are holding our traditional Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday 21st March on the Common.
Chil is also challenging us all with her annual Easter anagram quiz. Download the quiz here or pick up a paper copy next time you’re at the hut.

Our group is set to take delivery of a set of smart new tents with the help of a £2,300 grant from Melksham Area Board.
To build on our explosive fundraising performance at the bonfire night, our group took a stall at this year’s Melksham Christmas Fair. The stall did £150 of brisk business with eager Christmas shoppers. Thanks to all those who donated goods for us to sell.
Bright sparks from our Scout group earned mid-table respectability at the popular monthly charity pub quiz at The White Hart in Atworth.
A bonfire-night bonanza saw our group raise £753 through our catering tent and the sale of glow sticks at the Broughton Gifford firework display.
Thanks to those parents that helped (hope the smell of chips has finally gone) and thanks to the Explorers for selling the glow sticks.
