22nd Brownsea Scouts South Shields

80 years of scouting

Scouting for boys has been going on for many years in the UK since Baden Powell started the movement, and the oldest troop in South Shields is the 22nd Brownsea which has been active now for eighty years. Earlier this week they held their Annual General Meeting in South Shields Town Hall where the Mayor and Mayoress presented achievement certificates to all of the scouts and their leaders, I was amazed to learn that two of the leaders have given more than fifty years each of voluntary service!

The 22nd Brownsea Scouts, like all scouts these days, accept girls as well as boys, and they have four sections, Beavers, Cub Scouts, Scouts, and Explorer Scouts, they meet every Monday evening in the Margaret Sutton School in Ashleigh Road South Shields and they will always be pleased to see new members.

Pictured above are the youngest group, the Beaver Scouts, receiving their certificates.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28 mm lens, 1/30 second, f3.5, iso 200, flash
