There will be the West Kent Big Band performing, BBQ, a Queen’s Portrait Competition (Children’s) and a Wheelbarrow Race.

“I would really like to get as many companies involved in the Wheelbarrow Race and engaged with the local community.  We are asking for teams of 3 people.  There will be a prize for Best Decorated Themed Wheelbarrow, Best Dressed Themed Team and Fastest Circuit around the course (each of the 3 people taking turns in the barrow for 3 laps).  I will be asking local companies to see if they can donate items for the course in exchange for an advertising PVC banner attached to the fencing.  Course will be cordoned off with Plastic Meshed Fencing and we will be creating chicanes with haystacks, we also want to build a ramp with some logs to create an obstacle.  I’m hoping some companies can donate this items (or let us borrow them!) in exchange for advertising on the day.  Each team will have to sign a disclaimer that they enter at their own risk!  All good It’s A Knockout kind of fun with the public cheering them on.” – Rachel Gillis-Coates

Marden Cubs Needs You!

Cub Leaders and Assistants Required

 

Matt Causer is stepping down from his 9 year post as the Marden Cub Scout Leader at the end of the year. Volunteers are now needed to ensure Marden can continue to provide Cub Scouting for young people in the area.

Volunteers need not necessarily know how to tie a reef knot or put up a tent as enthusiasm goes a long way. Joining our team may sound like a big commitment to already busy lives but we encourage flexible volunteering and, like all things, many hands make light work.

Volunteering for the Cubs will give you the opportunity to change young people’s lives by encouraging them to achieve their best, building there self-confidence and develop their lives into a positive outlook for tomorrow.

With you providing the direction you can help make a young person see the way forwards, encouraging them to find the answer and discovering a solution through doing, helping them to grow into happy, confident, respected young people.

Can you do that?
