A HUGE congratulations...
To the World Scout Jamboree contingents from Wateringbury who ran an amazing Bingo night at the Village Hall to support their fund raising efforts.
It was an absolute blast of a time, with dobbers, full houses and eyes down!
Sadly, I failed to get any lines or full houses and my wife, Helen, was seemingly playing with fractions as Tudor thought!
A superbly organised event with loads of laughs and a cake auction... Martyn, the coffee cake was divine! :-)
An amazing £714 was raised!

What is a World Scout Jamboree?
The World Scout Jamboree is above all an educational event that brings together the world's young people to promote peace and mutual understanding and to develop leadership and life skills.
The 24th World Scout Jamboree will feature the hallmarks of past world jamboree programs, such as the Global Development Village, the World Scout Centre, a special sustainability initiative, and the socialization elements that allow participants to make lifelong friends from around the world.
Unlike any other youth event, the World Scout Jamboree invites you to surround yourself in diverse global cultures by joining your new Scouting friends at a single destination for 12 unforgettable days.
The jamboree experience extends beyond your home-and beyond the boundaries of our countries-to create a global adventure that will last a lifetime!
