Appeal for ex-Scouts

AN APPEAL has been launched to find former Scouts who want to take part in their old group’s centenary celebrations.

The 1st Holbrook Scout Group was one of the first troops to be established in the area — five years after the Scout movement began.

Now 100 years on, the group is seeking former Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and leaders to come together to celebrate a century of scouting in Holbrook.

Scout leader Marc Hudson said: “Over the last 100 years, the Scout group in Holbrook has been an important part of village life and we are certain that there will be many people still living in the village and the surrounding area who have fond memories of their time as a Holbrook Scout.”
