BARFORD "BE PREPARED" A Journey for Scouts and Guides
Book Launch Sunday 24th September 2017, 11am to 2pm Barford Memorial Hall
Barford Heritage Group 2017
On Sunday 24th September 2017, Barford Heritage Group will launch a new book
‘Barford “Be Prepared” A Journey for Scouts and Guides.‘
The idea for this book grew out of the need to replace the ageing scout hut in Wasperton Lane with a new Barford Youth and Community Centre. The book is dedicated to leaders of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, Guides and Brownies, past and present, who freely give their time.
Proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to the new Youth and Community Centre fund.
As well as tracing the history of the various groups from their formation in the village, in the early part of the last century, the book contains reminiscences of villagers who were involved in the groups either as members or leaders. It contains many photographs and we anticipate comments on how well some of us have aged!
The launch will take place on Sunday 24th September between 11am and 2pm in the Memorial Hall.
No admission charge but donations gratefully received.
Light refreshments will be served.
