We are delighted to announce that the Scout Group is the biggest is has ever been, in its 105 year history! With 192 members, it has seen 8 years of growth, and has significantly reduced its waiting list, to a fraction of what it was. It’s all down to our Volunteers, supporters and young people that have made this possible, a massive thanks to them.
