Menstrie Scout Group

Centenary celebrations come to a close

Link to the Scouts' web site |d| The last twelve weeks have been exceptionally busy for the Group as we come to the end of our centenary celebrations. The exhibition in early September was very well attended with people coming from as far afield as Edinburgh and Ayr as well as from all parts of the county. We hope the many aspects of the exhibition indicated the wide range of activities which provide fun, challenge and adventure to all those involved in Scouting. The archival part of the exhibition provoked many reminiscences from former scouts reliving those camps, hikes and other activities of 10, 20, 30 and 40 years ago.

Lights and fireworks

The torchlight procession and fireworks display was a great success with the Group receiving many complimentary messages from appreciative villagers. We had some anxious moments in the afternoon as bad weather threatened to cancel the event. However, with the rain going off in the early evening, the hard work of the previous two weeks brought its reward with a thoroughly memorable occasion. We have many pictures of the procession but lack one of the '100' taken from the village. If you have an image of this and can provide a copy please 'phone 761465.
