Thank you: Last year many of the wonderful people from Burwash and surrounding areas helped me with raising funds for young Aaron Foord to enable him to attend the World Scout Jamboree in Japan in July of this year. With help of the £1,160 we raised from the special lunch and the postal he has now made his target. He and his family are very grateful to everyone who has helped and supported his fund raising efforts. We wish Aaron a great adventure and look forward to hearing all about it on his return.
