101 Not Out

Date: 21st Apr 2017 Author: Scout Websites
Good Friday saw the 101st Good Friday breakfast which is a tradition held by St Nicolas/9th Guildford Scout Group.

The tradition which is held every Good Friday started 101 years ago, where the Scouts from the group who had been working in the 1st world war as motor cyclist couriers, drove from their HQ in Guildford to the Hurtwood Inn in Peaslake.

Over the years, motorbikes turned to cycles and members of the group now cycle to Peaslake, this has now turned to a walk up Pitch Hill

The group, the largest in the district has contributed towards an overall increase of numbers in Guildford West which grew by 18% over the last year.

Cath Anderson, Beaver Scout Leader for the group said that she is a leader as she has opportunities to try new activities, she wouldn’t of otherwise got to do.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
