The 1st Henley Scout Group held their annual bonfire night last Friday evening on the Borlase field next to Swiss Farm.
The Group which includes Beavers, Cubs and Scouts invited families to enjoy a traditional bonfire, a barbecue and drinks. This is the fourth year they had held the fundraising event with kind permission of Joseph Borlase.
There was a guy making competition with the winners able to light the fire remotely.
Richard Thompson from 1st Henley Scouts said, “A great time was had by everyone learning about the history of Guy Fawkes, the gunpowder plot and Bonfire Night before enjoying the warming fire, barbecue and drinks. We have some major maintenance upgrades required on the the Scout Hut and will be creating a number of fund raising initiatives in the future.”
