Scouting in St Cyrus

At a recent meeting regarding restarting Scouting in St Cyrus five people volunteered to become adult leaders and two people volunteered to become young leaders.

Initially they are hoping to form a Cub pack (8-10 1/2 years) followed by Beavers (6-8 years) and Scouts (10 1/2 - 14 years) after more leaders are recruited.

All of scouting is open to both boys and girls and names are now being taken for all sections.

Mearns Memories

Stewart Campbell contacted the Leader to tell us he recognised everyone in last week’s Mearns memories picture as he was in the tug of war team which won by default because no other team entered. Grant Moody’s mum also popped in and was able to identify everyone in the picture.

They identified; Roland Fraser (at the back), then left to right; Gordon Rendall, Steven Gilligan, Grant Moody, Andrew Still and at the front from left to right; Ian Wards, John Wilson and himself Stewart Campbell.
