A SCOUT group is cel­e­brat­ing its 90th birth­day with a gala.

The 1st Poyn­ton Scout group is invit­ing fam­i­lies to come along to the event at its scout hut in Lawrence Place, Poyn­ton, on Septem­ber 20.

There will be ac­tiv­i­ties for bud­ding ad­ven­tur­ers, young or old, and demon­stra­tions of scout­ing skills such as how to build a camp­fire.

The group, which re­cently had a su­per­herothemed camp trip, have a thriv­ing mem­ber­ship 100 young peo­ple aged be­tween six and 14.

They are sup­ported by a ded­i­cated team of adult and young lead­ers.

The group has close links with an Ex­plorer unit in Poyn­ton which meets in the same hut on a Thurs­day evening.

Group leader, Oliver Hard­man, said: “It’s an hon­our to lead such an ac­tive group with so many com­mit­ted lead­ers who give up their time will­ingly to at­tend the train­ing and run the ac­tiv­i­ties.

“Hav­ing been to beavers, cubs, scouts and ex­plor­ers my­self in this group it’s sat­is­fy­ing to give some­thing back and watch mem­bers de­velop their skills and con­fi­dence.”

The gala is from 12pm on Septem­ber 20.
