Vision for Hillsborough scouting to be launched at Hockey Club

Members of First Hillsborough Scout Troup and leaders pictured at a recent event in their programme of centenary celebrations to mark the 100th anniversary of the formation of the scouting movement by Baden-Powell.

A `BOLD new vision' for the future of scouting in Hillsborough will be launched at Lisnagarvey Hockey Club on Tuesday (May 29) at 8.30pm.

The committee of First Hillsborough Scout Group would like to extend a warm welcome not only to the parents, grandparents or guardians of existing scouts but also former scouts who have had association with Hillsborough.

Representatives from local community organisations are also encouraged to attend as are members of the local community who may be interested in finding out what is being planned for the future of Hillsborough Scout Hall.

To confirm attendance please contact Robert MacKinnon, email or telephone 028 92688176. Meanwhile, 12 of Hillsborough's cub scouts are looking forward to a trip to Essex this summer where they will participate in the Centenary Year of Scouting World Scout Jamboree.
