1st Linslade Scout Group recently marked the centenary of its first ever meeting in 1921.

It’s been a difficult year where all Scouting has been severely affected due to Covid lockdowns. The group had hoped to hold events to celebrate the centenary, but lockdown has unfortunately meant all face-to-face Scouting has been cancelled for the past 12 months. They are now starting to welcome groups back, albeit over Zoom

This first meeting on March 15, 1921 was held under the supervision of the first scoutmaster, Fred Rowe at the Forster Institute (Waterloo Road).

The group has moved around several locations in Linslade over the last 100 years and have been at the current headquarters, ‘Nyamba’, on Mowbray Drive since the mid 1990s. The group has been busy in digitising its history which is available at www.1stlinslade.org.uk/historyThe group has also set up a Facebook page. They would love to hear from former members so they can share their memories of the group and keep informed about events that will be organised in the future. https://www.facebook.com/groups/3209199129091676In the coming weeks and months, as lockdown is eased, it will start to see the groups going back in person so plans can be made to mark the centenary in style
