Mothering Sunday Church Service

Sunday 6th March 2016

The Annual Mothering Sunday service will take place on Sunday 6th March 2016 at St Botolph’s Church. The service will start at 10:30 am, sections will meet in the Church Hall by 10:00 am.

This year’s service will be the same as last year, a family communion format but shortened as much as possible and will still include pieces from all sections. The Length is less than an hour. Flags will be paraded, a posy of flowers prepared by the Mothers Union will be given to all Mums present and there will also be simnal cakes and a drink after the service in the church.

So, please come along and give your support to the children and leaders.

Calling all potential musicians! The Lincoln District Scout Band is running some introductory training evenings.

If you have always fancied a go on a trumpet, snare drum, flute, clarinet, bell lyre or a bugle then this may be for you.

You can even take along your own instrument if you’re already musically inclined or you always wanted to learn to play that euphonium your Aunty Edith gave you…

Our Lincolnshire

We have been contacted by the University of Lincoln to assist them with their ‘Our Lincolnshire’ campaign. They are performing a study on what the people of Lincolnshire think about their heritage. They would like the children and young adults from all groups to fill out the survey (link below) which should take around 15 minutes for over 10’s and around 5-10 minutes for under 10’s.

If the children let their group leader know if they filled out the survey then this activity may count towards badge work.

The survey is available from this link;

If you would like to know more about the project then you can view their on-line blog here;

Thank You

Thank YouA big “Thank You!” to everyone who came along to the fundraiser today. We raised a total of £600 towards the community defibrillator!

John McDonald of the Pavilion Bar also had this to say;

A big thank you for raising this fantastic amount from myself and the rest of the Pavilion Bar Saxilby staff. The total raised so for towards the purchase of the CAD stands at £895.00 including the amount raised by yourselves. I now have the lottery license (200 Club) from WLDC and I have approached 2 well known and respected persons in the village and asked them if they will be prepared to act as trustees for the fund. Once they are in place, I can then give you more information and a date for the launch of the lottery to raise the final amount needed. Once again, many thanks for your efforts in raising this incredible amount in a matter of a few hours.
