For all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts & Families

Each year, Scouts around Britain attend annual St. George’s day services, held in honour of their patron saint, St. George. It is an important occasion for every member of the Scout Association from 6 years – 100 years old, since during the service each Scout is asked to renew his/her promise. The up-beat service, complete with band takes place at the Bethany Christian Centre at Houghton, on Thursday 22nd  April 2010. Over 400 Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Leaders are expected to attend from around the district. We ask that every member of our Group attend.


This year’s service is extra important for all members, our Group President, John Addington will receive a very special ‘Silver Acorn Award’ for outstanding services to Scouting. Please be there to support our group.
