Scouts in for the long haul even af­ter move

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

AF­TER re­lo­cat­ing to Floreat ear­lier this year, the Perth Cen­tral Scout Group is seek­ing new mem­bers.

The group, which was es­tab­lished in Fe­bru­ary 2014, moved from West Perth to a hall at 12 Draper Street.

Scout Group de­vel­op­ment man­ager James Maugh­mer said mem­bers re­mained loyal dur­ing the move.

“Some of our mem­bers who lived the fur­thest away when we were based in West Perth are still the fur­thest away now, but they have stayed with us,” he said.

Mr Maugh­mer said scouts were as pop­u­lar as ever, with up to two new groups es­tab­lished each year for the past three years, with the only lim­it­ing fac­tor be­ing a lack of vol­un­teers to help run the groups and ac­tiv­i­ties.
