But when the book is stolen, it’s up to Paddington and the Browns to unmask the thief.

The Press and Journal has launched a fabulous competition to win a Community Minibus and we would love to enter – here’s how you can help! All you have to do is collect the tokens that will be published in the Press and Journal daily from Monday, 20th November until Friday, February 3rd 2018.

50 tokens gets one entry coupon but we can enter as many times as we want. In other words, the more tokens we collect the more entries we have!   We will have a collection box in the Scout hut, we’d appreciate if you could drop off your tokens every week or two, rather than at the end, as we will send them away every time we reach 50.

Why not ask your work colleagues, neighbours and friends to help too? Every token helps!

Happy collecting and thank you!   Yours Sincerely
