Thanks to the magnificent donations of fabric and haberdashery from Curry Rivel, Langport, Fivehead and other local villages to stock the Guide stall at Drayton Street Fair in September, an amazing total of £475 was raised.
1st Curry Rivel and Drayton Guides along with Somerton Guides are the two Guides units in the smallest division (Sedgemoor) in Somerset. Last month one member dropped out of the county volunteering trip to Sri Lanka, next spring; however they welcomed a new member from Somerton Guides, which means they have to raise a little more cash for the trip.
Thanks to the generosity of local residents there is enough haberdashery stock for another stall at "All things Textile", a textile craft and resources fair at Woolavington Village Hall, 10am-3pm, Sat 21st October 2017.
Thanks are also due to Steve at The Crown for hosting a Men's sponsored hair removal. the loss of a head of hair, a beard and two legs worth of hair raised almost £500 towards fundraising.
The Guiding group meets up at regular intervals around the county to do team building exercises, learn Sinhalese and put together activity packs to be used on their trip. The next meeting is in Fivehead Village Hall 28th October for another Briefing day of similar activities and this will culminate in a Grand Auction of Promises large and small, with ploughman's supper and a glass of wine, starting at 7 pm. There will be a bar.
Tickets at £5 each with a catalogue can be obtained from Theresa Burge on 01460281441 or Jane Brooke on 01458 252901.
