1st Consett Scout Group is celebrating after passing the 100 members milestone in this year’s annual Scout census.
With 87 children and 15 adult leaders the group is the biggest it has been since Scouting started in Consett in 1910, and is the most successful scout group in Derwentside.
We recently opened a second Beaver Scout colony to cope with demand for 6 to 8 year olds, and are now hoping to open a second Cub Pack for 8 to 10 year olds as the current Cub Pack is full.
To enable this to happen we are looking for adult volunteers to come and join the adventure of Scouting. No experience is required, just a willingness to join in and have fun!
Group Scout Leader Keith Slater said, "2015 is going to be an amazing year for Scouting in Consett. We have set a new milestone in numbers, and after Easter we will be opening our amazing new headquarters, which will enable us to deliver even more exciting activities. Our next goal is opening the new Cub Pack in September, and we are looking for adults with a sense of fun and adventure who want to be part of something amazing to enable us to do so".
