  1. SORRY! Got to clarify some points. The area we are having our event on the day is the amphitheatre mown grass area. During our planning meetings it has always been called the Crown Meadow, wrongly! Quite rightly we would not consider any environmental damage. As scouts we are ingrained in preserving all wildlife and environments.
    Since our posters and leaflets have gone out we have reviewed the situation regarding fire and we will not be lighting any fires. This has also meant that the BBQ will  not occur however we will have drinks and biscuits. 
    Forgive us this mistake in our first wave of posters and i will ask Jamie to replace this one with the revised one.

  2. What absolute madness, firelighting on Crown Meadow. There’s over 3000 wild flowers planted not to mention all the wild life. The ground has voles nestled in all over the meadow. I expect our daft town council have given the go ahead on this one. I hope the kids have a good time but at what cost.
