Scouting in Halifax
Earlier this year, Halifax children were invested into the new 50th Savile Park Scout Group by the local primary school, where it meets each week.
A grant from UGLE and help from Halifax District Scout Council enabled the group to provide first class scouting in a diverse area of Halifax. The north-east regional development team from the national Scout organisation have also been instrumental in helping the group’s formation.
Cubs and Beavers were invested into the group and the World Wide Scouting Association by District Commissioner Martin Longbottom, Beacon Lodge, No. 4066, Province of Yorkshire, West Riding, and Helen Ridehalgh, Assistant District Commissioner for Beaver Scouts. It is hoped that the group will become a full Cub Pack and Beaver Colony. New members are welcome.
