Bedding Plants

1st Marple Scouts will be running our annual Bedding Plants fundraiser again this year!  With prices held at 2010 prices of just £2 per box, it’s not only a great way to help support a local cause, but also a bit of a bargain!

All you need to do is download and print off this order form, make your selection, and drop it off at the Scout Hut.  The plants can be collected or delivered (free!) on the 11/12th May, and we’ll collect cash on delivery.  Please join in! :)

With our tummies rumbling we headed back to the lodge where we had fish and chips waiting for us. After the fish and chips we then watched a film and it was off to bed.
