A Second Century!

Just been reading more about Scouting’s centenary celebrations (see the Telegraph) and it’s just occurred to me that Scouting has now entered its second century!
1907 was a good year. Mum’s parents were born and Scouting started!

Scouting is 100

Happy Birthday to us…..!!!!!Laughing Birthday Cake 
Just got back from our District's Sunrise Ceremony at Apedale. It was a nice sunny morning and quite a lot of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts etc. turned up, which was quite impressive as it's the school holidays. It was a good place to have it as you could look across the majority of North Staffordshire.  See some photos here.

The press coverage on Scouting is still positive – see here for example. It seems that the Centenary celebrations and the Jamboree are all having positive reactions!
