First In, Fair Scout

The summer fair season rolls on and in addition to the Green Lane carnival this Saturday, the 1st Old Malden Scouts are having their annual Summer Fair on the same day (Saturday 7th June) on Plough Green (you know - Malden Road opposite the shops - where the Plough pub is. Yes that's right - pub).

This year they have a new Splat the Rat game, and Scouts in the Stocks. (You can throw a water balloon at them!)

They also have all the usual fun like Hook a Duck, Face Painting, and a bouncy castle, not to mention stalls like the popular plant stall, BBQ, Scalextric Racing, the Book Stall and Bric a Brac. They also have arena events this year including local children performing.

They are trying to raise money for a new mini bus. The group is growing fast, and they need to be able to take the boys and girls to activities and camps. Their old mini bus can’t enter low emission zones, so its use is limited and besides it’s become rather decrepit. 

The poster this year is an amalgamation of drawings by competition winners Sam Utting and Thomas Ghafur so well done to them!

Hoping lots of people will go along and have fun!
