Masons support International Scouting 12th March

Scouts from the Local St Cuthbert’s Troop in Burnley are planning to visit the International Jamboree in Sweden. The trip takes place in July this year and three members of the Troop will be traveling to the small town of  Kristianstad, in the South of the country along with an expected 38,000 other Scouts from around the world for the experience of a lifetime.

The three Scouts are trying to raise funds for the trip by various traditional Scouting methods, as well as already being in receipt of a donation from the Burnley & Pendle District Community Fund, W. Bro Roy Langtree has arranged a social Quiz Night for 7:30 pm Saturday 12th March at Nelson Masonic Hall. Tickets are £5.00 per person and include your supper, and if Debby’s track record for catering is anything to go by we should have more than our money’s worth.  It should be a lot of fun with all funds raised on the evening going to the Scouts Jamboree fund.

Hope to see you there.

  1. There are actually three scouts from St. Cuthbert’s going to the Jamboree. They are Gavin Bottacin(my grandson), Jake Launder and Matthew Buckley. They will be there on Saturday and no doubt will be keen to express their appreciation for the fund raising efforts on their behalf. See you on Saturday it will be a fun evening.


      1. Thanks Guys,
        With Ian and Kath that’s six, hopefully there will be a few more.
        Last time in October was a fun night and everybody enjoyed it and since then they’ve been asking my daughter when is the next one. Meat and potato pie and Deb’s fantastic peas and gravy, what could be better!. Incidentally, this is an example of the wording on the car stickers,”working in the community”
