Newport scouts are prepared to celebrate 100 years

A Newport centenarian does not expect to get a card from the Queen on their hundredth birthday next weekend but is hoping for a good turn out to mark the milestone.

The 6th Newport Scouts are staging a special party to mark their hundredth birthday.

Newport scout leader Cheryl Martin said: “This a momentous time and we intend to mark this wonderful anniversary with a party to remember. We’ve invited as many former 6th Newport Scouts as we can to the event and welcome any others that we’ve missed out to come along on the day.

“To celebrate this momentous occasion we will be holding the special event at the scout hut on Saturday, October 8th. The event will run from 1pm through till 6pm. We’ve gathered a collection of photos from over the years and we will be showcasing these pictures through the decades on the day.

“Entry is free to the party and we’ll be holding a raffle, selling food, refreshments and some small gifts to help raise funds.

“The 6th Newport started out under a few other names and in various locations in St Julian’s including Orchard Lane before moving to our current hut in the 70’s. We have a rich history showcasing scouting at its best, working in the community and for the benefit of the community. One of our lesser known stories includes the involvement of some of our scout leaders as Auxiliaries (British Resistance) during the Second World War.”

Cheryl is now urging ex beavers, cubs and scouts who attended or were involved with the group over the decades to get in touch.

“We’re keen to see any pictures and memorabilia, and would love to take copies which can be displayed on our road map through the 100 years. “

If you want to make contact in advance please call 0303 303 3 303 or e-mail
