Scout group celebrates its 80th birthday.

THE 6th Tynemouth (Holy Saviours) scout group is celebrating its 80th birthday with a special exhibition weekend, tomorrow and Sunday, November 28 and 29.

Over the weekend, at its Manor Road headquarters in Tynemouth, the group is staging an exhibition of photographs and memorabilia recalling its 80 years of history.

Scout leader David Littlefield said: "Our group has a long history of scouting over many years and former members have been sending me fascinating photographs, some going back six decades."

He went on: "Anyone from the local area who would like to see what we have been doing over the last 80 years is very welcome to come to our group headquarters and have a look at our display.

"We would especially like to hear from any of our former beaver scouts, cub scouts or scouts who might like to join us for a reunion party on Saturday evening."

On Sunday, there will be a church parade at 10am and everyone is welcome to join. This will also include local rainbows, brownies and guides.

The service will be led by the new vicar of Holy Saviours, Rev Martin Jacques.

The scouts are keen to build up their collection of old photos and memorabilia.
