In honour of the landmark, they are having a service of celebration on Sunday, March 11, followed by a get together of ex-members.

Current members of the group are hoping former members will be able to join them for the reunion.

Group Scout leader Pauline Norman said: “This is a milestone for the group and there must be ex-members still living locally.”

Anyone who would like to attend the reunion can email Pauline on normanpauline@pobroadband.co.uk for more details.
