Scout Leader Pete Leach gets friendly with the Panto Dame.

19 Scout groups from Wrexham, Llangollen and Flintshire attended this years Cinderella pantomime at the William Aston Hall Wrexham on Sunday. Over 680 Beavers, Cubs and Scouts brought the house down ensuring a great atmosphere.

Cub Scout Kian Paddock aged 9 from 6th Wrexham and Beaver Scout Rebecca Kate Owen aged 7 from 2nd Llay won the best made christmas hat prize. Both won a prize and went onto the stage to sing Old McDonald’s Farm.

After the Performance the cast, including Buttons played by Matt Dallen, the Barron played by Sid Little from Little & Large, and David Heath from the X-Factor’s Eaton Road came out to meet the young Scouts to sign autographs and have photos.

Huw Jones a Scout at 1st Esclusham said “It was very funny, Buttons was my favourite character especially when he threw the toilet roll on to the light’s. He looked very worried, I don’t really think it was meant to happen!”

Pete Jones who organised the Scouts’ visit said, “We’d like to thank Tim Vincent for making this happen and coming to meet the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts before and after the show. We’re looking forwards to seeing everyone again in 2012.”
