Purley Swimathon
Our team swam 111 lengths in 55 minutes. We are so proud of them all.
It’s not too late to sponsor them - the link to MYDONATE page is:-
Every penny raised will be going to support "Daisy", the horse that we are sponsoring at The Diamond Centre for Disabled Riders.
We’re collecting Woodcote Green, Green Fingered Scheme Vouchers!
Our aim is to construct a small garden along the front of the scout hut later on this year.
Next time you visit, please do consider donating the vouchers to us.
St. Mark’s World War 1 Memorial Project – “Adopt a Name”
This is your last chance to support this wonderful project. We have just a few names left to “adopt” and so if your family would like to get involved, please email Alex Beal, our Chairman:- We are encouraging everyone to complete their research by May 2018.
As well as researching the history of the name, families are asked to try and trace their descendants so that we can invite them to a special service at St. Mark’s on Sunday 25th November 2018 at 3pm.
Bring a friend!
If your child has a friend who would love to join Beavers, Cubs or Scouts, please invite them along to a free taster evening. All we need is an e mail by the Monday beforehand, confirming their name, dob, any medical conditions / allergies / special help / support needed and a contact number for Mum / Dad.
