New Ludgershall Scout group off to good start at celebration
8:00pm Sunday 24th February 2013 in News
The founding 50 members of the new 5th Wiltshire B-P Scout Group were invested and received their full uniforms.
More than 150 family members, friends and guests attended the event at Ludgershall Memorial Hall on February 8.
Group Scoutmaster, Colin Stevens, said: “Since we started the demand for a local group has been much higher than even our research had shown.
“We filled up within a few weeks of opening and are now working on adding to our leaders and helpers team so we can grow a bit more. It’s great that so many local youngsters can enjoy scouting.”
