Beckworth Bob-A-Job Bingo Week

Dear all, just a gentle reminder that this half-term holiday it’s Bob-A-Job week, so please, no hiding when the cubs, scouts, brownies and guides come knocking. This week, in addition to the usual door to door protection rackets, extortion and black mail, the children will be trying to raise vast amounts of money playing a game of their own invention, bob-a-job “doorstep” bingo. I am unclear of the rules but am told it should be lots of fun. I must also stress that due to the childrens’ ages this falls outside of the gaming laws so please treat it as a bit of fun (i.e. there’s no come back back if you don’t get full house). So please give generously, as the children want to build a soft- play area (to be named in honour of their leader Lord Bob Geldof) with the proceeds.

Thanks Tony Grimsby, Group Scout Leader

D-Day Re-Enactment This Friday

Dear all, just a reminder that this Friday the scouts and guides will be re-enacting, in real time, the D-Day landings. It’s seventy years to the day of this historical occasion and in remembrance regional scout leader Sir Bob-bob-bob-dib-dib-dib Geldof has trained his “troops” to perfectly act out the Allie’s beach landing on the school playing fields (weather permitting). It’s only taken 6 months rehearsing, but the boys and girls are now word perfect. The Beckworth & Crewbury Historical Re-enactors will be enthusiastically playing the Germans and it promises to be a moving day out for all the family.

See you “on the beaches.” Thanks Tony Grimsby, Group Scout Leader
