Proceeds from the bi-annual event help with the group’s normal day to day operating costs.

“It was a very successful event and I would like to thank all those families and friends within our group who supported this event to make this one of the best jumbles results we have had,” said scouts chairman Gareth Hughes.

“As most people appreciate, our leaders and other volunteers give their time for free, but successful scouting still requires funds - for day to day running costs, venue hire, equipment, to run camps, provide badges and make activities accessible for everyone.

“I would also like to thank the Sidmouth people who played their part by donating items for sale, and coming on the day to see what bargains we had.”

The group is also the subject of a Herald campaign to help it raise enough cash to build a new HQ at the Salcombe Recreational Field.

Donation can be sent to treasurer Denese Molyneux at Goodrich House, Cheese Lane, Sidmouth EX10 8RA or online at, search for 1st Sid Vale Scout Group.
