Community Champions

We are proud to announce that our application for the Community Champions scheme, run by Lincolnshire Co-op, has made the final shortlist for voting in the Scotter area!
The scheme is designed to provide local charities and groups with a sum of money that can be reinvested to improve the community.
Please vote for us, Scotter Forward, here: www.lincolnshire.coop/ccvote. so that we can use the money to make Scotter even better!

Community Centre Volunteers Needed

The team who have prepared meals for Over 55’s at the Eau Community Centre over the last few years have now decided that they need to retire. The meals are very much looked forward to and enjoyed by many older members of our community and if they are to be continued, we need volunteers take the places of the retiring team members.
The meals run only seven times per year and a range of different activities are involved with the preparation of the meals. If you would be so kind as to set aside a few hours of your time each year to allow the continuation of this much valued amenity, then please phone Lillian on 01724 762743 or Ellie on 01724 762807.

Mount Kilimanjaro Expedition

On 7th September, Scotter resident David Welch and his three sons will be flying out to tackle Africa’s highest mountain: Kilimanjaro. Climbing to a height of 5,895 metres over 7 days, the lads are hoping to raise funds for the refurbishment of Scotter Tennis Club’s facilities and, on top of that, David will match any funds in excess of his target and split the resulting amount between the tennis club and Scotter Chapel. Any donation, big or small, to David’s cause is greatly appreciated and can be given to his Just Giving page: www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/david-welch-kili

Badminton Club restarts on Monday 9th
