Santa in the strees

We're delighted that once again Santa has reached out to 1st Burnmoor Scouts to help spread some Christmas cheer. Santa, his sleigh and the 1st Burnmoor elves will be in Lumley on the 19th and in Fence Houses and Burnmoor on the 20th.

Please help by spreading the word.

If you'd like to come along and help with the collection, please meet us at 6pm at the new co-op in Lumley on the Monday, and at 4:30 or 5:30 at the Scout hall on the Tuesday.
