Firstly I have great news to celebrate. On 4th May 2022 the Old Basing Scouts & Guide Hall Trustees received planning approval for a new hall on land owned in trust for the young people of our village. This milestone has taken more than 10 years to achieve and was only possible with support from so many wonderful people in the parish of Old Basing & Lychpit. Thank you to all of you!
Please come and join us at the field behind our old (derelict) hall on Milkingpen Lane to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, 100 years of Scouting in our village and much more of the voluntary service within our community. We hope to help you all have a fun day & enjoy our site for the afternoon. We will be serving lunch from a barbeque and light refreshments (including ice cream and soft drinks). There will be music, many games & activities for people for all ages and abilities.
Please wear a decorated hat to help us celebrate the day and enter our competition for the best hat of the day; judging will take place at 1400 hrs. We hope that many will come and join in making a special day of celebration for our community.
Entrance from 1200 hrs on payment of £1 per adult (children accompanied by an adult will gain entry free of charge). We plan to start packing up at 1600 hrs but we will be guided by how much fun you are having on the day.
We have (very) limited parking options at the site and hope to reserve the closest spots for blue badge users. Please either walk or cycle to the event (if you are able) but if you need to drive please park responsibly in the spaces that are available around our village and enjoy a short walk to our site.
