Here at 4th Ewell we'd like to express our thanks to everyone who has supported our Christmas Tree Sale this year. Over the last two weekends we have sold a whopping 310 trees and have raised thousands of pounds to support Scouting at 4th Ewell for another year.
We know that times are tough right now, which is why we appreciate your support now more than ever. All the proceeds from the sale go to support 4th Ewell and other participating local charities.
With the increasing popularity of real Christmas Trees demand in the UK this year has outstripped supply, pushing up the wholesale cost of trees. But, by keeping our overheads low, we have managed to keep our prices competitive, whilst continuing to supply only the finest quality trees that our customers have come to expect from us over the last three years.
We were delighted to see many familiar faces at this year's sale with many people returning to us for a third time this year. This is a huge compliment and testament to the quality of our trees. We are delighted to know that so many people will be enjoying a 4th Ewell Nordman Fir for a third consecutive year.
Of course fund-raising events like this don't happen without the support of a huge team of dedicated parents, leaders, Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who gave up their time this Christmas to help with our sale. We couldn't have done it without you!
If you'd like to get involved with the fun and adventure of Scouting please head over to our main website for more information. Don't forget that Scouting is for adults too. Scouting simply would not exist without the skills and enthusiasm of thousands of our adult helpers. Whether you can spare two hours a week or a day a month, we need instructors, treasurers, administrators and people to help out at meetings.
There are few things quite as satisfying as providing the opportunity for a new Beaver Scout discover their first night away from home, or helping a Scout build their first bivouac in the woods.
The most important thing to remember is that everyone has something to offer. And no matter how much time you can spare, there is a role to suit everyone in Scouting.
Have you got your tree decorated yet? We'd love to see what you've done with it, so please send us a picture through our 'Show Us Yours' page.
Once again, thank you very much for your support of the 4th Ewell Christmas Tree Sale 2011. Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
