Fairs, Fetes and Shows Diary for 2017

For 2017 we expect to be fund raising at the following events:

27 May

Gosport Maritime Festival

17 - 18 Jun

HMS Sultan Summer Show

28 Aug

Stubbington Show

30 Sep

Alverstoke Michaelmas Fair

Other dates will be added above, and to the Group Diary when we have them.

We desperately need adult volunteers to help man the fundraising stall at these events - literally without fundraising there will be no Group. If you can help us for a few hours please send an email to the Chair of our Executive Committee. If you're a Scout or Cub Scout and would like to help on the stall please ask Mum or Dad to contact us. Beavers are welcome too, but please bring Mum or Dad with you!

These events not only keep the name "5th Gosport Sea Scout Group" in the community and attract future members but they are also an essential part of our fund-raising program. In 2015 we made over £1000 at these events and this money is essential to maintain the income levels required to keep a big Scout Group like ours running. As well as all the smaller events we want/need to make both days of the HMS Sultan Summer Show a hugely successful money spinner. For these events we need your help in two ways (or 3 ways if you include praying for good weather!):

  • Firstly, we would like every Beaver, Cub and Scout to donate at least one item for our tombola stall. We ask that items donated are new, that any food/drink donations are in date until at least the end of 2016 and above all they are items that punters would want to win and would therefore happily part with their cash to try and win. So, please be as generous as you can with your donations.
  • Secondly, we need helpers to run our stall, and the more we get the better as this will allow us to break the task down into much smaller chunks and blackuce the amount of your time that we will need. PLEASE help us, particularly at the Sultan Show (18 & 19 June), even if it is just an hour or two.

If you can help we need to know so please contact one of the Leaders or Committee Members, or send us an e-mail.
