Local stars make debut in Calor Christmas video!
Christmas is a time to come together to enjoy the spirit of giving and sharing – whether that be amongst families or within communities,both small and large.
To help inject some Christmas spirit to local communities across the nation, rural energy provider Calor has created a warm and engaging social video focusing on the many different projects its annual funding scheme has helped over the past two years.
1st Whittingham BP Scout Group wins grant
Local stars from 1st Whittingham BP Scout Group feature in the video, in part to say thank you to everyone who voted for them to receive £1,000 grant from the Calor Rural Community Fund, which funded new equipment for the Group’s indoor and outdoor cooking sessions.
The Group plays host to 20 Beavers, 18 Cubs, 15 Scouts and 10 Senior Scouts who are taught cooking skills in the kitchen and at camp,using expedition stoves and open fires.
Breamish Valley residents will know of the wonderful young people from 1st Whittingham BP Scout Group, as they recently represented our local youth at the Breamish Valley War Memorial dedication ceremony.
