Wall Heath scouts to celebrate centenary

First published in News

WALL Heath Scout Group will be celebrating 100 years with an open day this weekend.

The group, which has been going since 1914, will be holding the event at its Enville Road HQ from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday June 22.

Memorabilia and photographs will be on display at the open day to which past members or scout group helpers are invited to attend and share old pictures and stories.

Members of the scout group also plan to enjoy a visit to Dudley Zoo, buffet and film showing at their HQ over the anniversary weekend.

David Mitchell, chairman of the 1st Wall Heath Scout Group, said the group formed just seven years after the Scouting movement was formed by Baden-Powell. He added: “Apart from a few war years, the group has continued to promote the development of young people and currently has nearly 70 members – both boys and girls.”

Anyone unable to attend the open day but keen to get in touch can call the group scout leader on 07860 801025.
