Scouts celebrate in style

22 December 2012

A group of Scouts haveave got their Christmas event well and truly pegged.

Kent Scouts, the Kent Messenger’s 2013 charity of the year, are raising money to transform their headquarters at Lower Grange Farm, in Sandling, into an activity centre.

And at the weekend they threw open the doors to celebrate the festive season with more than 200 friends, family and supporters, earning themselves a total of £700.

There were carol singers from the Maidstone Scouts gang show to entertain visitors and stalls selling candy floss and other treats.

Kent Scouts county project manager Beccy Martin said: “Another very popular stall was for our tent peg Christmas trees –we asked people to send us tent pegs, which they had made and decorated, and my husband put them together as trees."
