Scout group seeks former members for celebrations

MEMBERS of a scout group are on the hunt for former members in the run up to their centenary celebrations.

2015 will mark the 100th year of the 3rd Tynemouth (Ritson’s Own) Scout Group, and they will be holding an open day on Saturday, May 19, from 1pm to 5pm at their headquarters on Billy Mill Lane, North Shields where memorabilia from the past 96 years of Scouting in their group will be on display.

Scout leader Michael Dale said: “We are looking to get some personal stories to add to the factual information we have collected.

“We want to make it a celebration to remember.”

Anyone wanting more information about the open day, or those who have a story they can share about their time in the group can get in touch with Michael Dale by emailing or calling 07713 056858.
