Join the Scouts

THE Scouts have renewed an appeal for new members and leaders to join with the local movement.

The call comes after the South East Antrim Scout District held its AGM on August 22. Opening the meeting, chairman, Mr Peter Dawson had the pleasure of congratulating Bill Pollock on receiving the British Empire Medal in the Queen’s Jubilee Honours List. The official business of the evening was the presentation of reports, accounts and the election of lay officials for the district. The positions were filled by: chairman, Peter Dawson, treasurer Allister Law, secretary Ron Cole and badge secretary Alex Powers. Tom Weir was appointed auditor to the district.

The AGM was hosted by First Greenisland Scout Group and Mr Dawson thanked them for their generosity and the magnificent supper which ended the evening.

With Scout groups restarting after the summer holidays anyone wishing to join a local organisation should visit the South East Antrim website at www.greenseas.org.uk.
