We are trying to raise funds for Camping, materials and other fun activities, so we are hoping for donations! We have our Haunted Scareport (airport), axe throwing with a professional adult guide, a 50/50 draw ($2 for 1 or $5 for 3) and we will have a Bouncy Castle! Lots and lots of fun to be had! We are located beside the Acton library on School Lane. We will be there from 12pm to 2 but might run later depending on how busy we get and how exhausted our scouts might be! They really are a great group of kids and are so very excited to put on a show for everyone!”
