THE 8th Ellesmere Port Scouting Group is celebrating its 70th anniversary this month.

The Scouts are hosting a ‘celebratory day’ on Saturday, June 4, at St Thomas and All Saints (opposite The Hub), Ellesmere Port.

The event starts at 10am, with the official opening at 10.30am.

Group secretary Shirley Bowers said: “There will be an exhibition of old memories, photos, cine films and slide shows. We will have a camping demonstration, raffle and many more events.

“Refreshments will be available, with funds being put toward our 70th summer camp and the group’s outdoor activity centre, a long cottage near Brenig Reservoir in North Wales.

“We are looking for past members of the group who may have old photographs, films or any other memorabilia relating to their time spent with the 8th that can be used at the event.”

The Scouts will also be hosting a meal on Saturday, July 23, and tickets are available.
