WE are delighted to announce that an amazing 90 young people have been invested into the Radnor District Scout Groups and Radnor Explorer Unit.

This is a personal record for District Commissioner Anna King, who said: “I am thrilled and humbled to see so many new young people enjoying the Scouting Adventure.”

On Monday, November 6, the 1st Hay-on-Wye Scout Group and Radnor Explorer Unit ceremonies were held at Tirmynach Farm Hay-on-Wye. Courtesy of David and Jill Williams.

A big Scouting thank you to them both for supporting our young people and allowing us to use the farm and see their sensational steam engines.

Leading the event was Regional Commissioner (Adrian Austin), District Commissioner Anna King, Explorer Leader Adrian Bunton and Group Scout Leader Claire Griffiths.

Altogether an astounding 13 Cubs, 15 Scouts and 19 Explorers were invested into the worldwide Scouting family with the backdrop of a huge bonfire, followed by a campfire singalong and BBQ for their families and friends which made this truly an investiture to remember.

The Scouts, which opened in June 2017 with 19 young people, now has an amazing 70 young people attending Cubs and Scouts, with Beavers opening in 2018. Scouting offers young people opportunities they may not get elsewhere. We offer over 200 activities from abseiling and coding to drama and water-zorbing, with now over a quarter of UK Scouting’s membership being female.

The young people get to develop skills such as self-reliance and teamwork. Being active outdoors is encouraged as well as learning lifelong skills such as tool use, bush craft, cooking, leadership, team work, resilience, supporting local communities and many other exciting fundraising events.
