This site is the public face of the 1st Helensburgh Scout Group in Scotland. By using the menu bar (the three bars at the top left hand corner on a mobile phone) you can obtain general information on the activities of the 6 Sections of the Group and details of the Scout Headquarters and the Arden Camping Site. The menu also provides access to a short history of the Group, the results for a photo competition in December 2020 and details on how to access an archive of historic photographs. Finally the website contains information about activities with some Risk Assessments of general interest.
The pandemic years of 2020 and 2021 presented significant challenges to the Group but was countered by an active outdoor programme of hiking, cycling, kayaking etc. and is now back to full strength. Typical of the Group was the unique, 4metre high, floating Platinum Jubilee Beacon illustrated.
Much needs to be done, including the refurbishment and integration of the cottage, new leadership found for the second Beaver Scout colony and, in the more distant future, for a Squirrel Scout drey.
