A Scouting group in the Moorlands has been celebrating six decades of their organisation.

The 2nd Cheadle Scout Group has celebrated their 60th birthday by hosting a special cook out event at Freehay Village Hall.

Beaver Scout Leader Ruth Tweed said: “Our 2nd Cheadle Scout Group gathered for an end of term Big Birthday Cook Out at Freehay Village Hall, to celebrate the 60th year of the Group’s opening, on July 19, 1962.

We had a fantastic turnout from our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and their families, to enjoy some activities and a BBQ together.

We were very happy with all the support from the members of the group and their families.” Charlotte Clarkson, Section Assistant of the Cubs, continued: “We are pleased everyone enjoyed the event. It was lovely to see everyone having a great time and all three sections coming together.

This is what Scouting is all about and why we volunteer. Thank you everyone for coming along.”

Also in attendance was councillor Sue Walley, Cheadle Town Mayor, to help the group celebrate the special birthday.

Ruth said: “We were very privileged to have cllr Walley attend our barbecue and family event.

As a fellow Beaver Scout Leader within the Moorlands District and a great supporter of community events, it was lovely to have her attend and we would like to extend a big thank you for her time.”

Assistant Beaver Scout Leader, Elliot Ashton, who was Lead event organiser said of the event: “It’s always great to get all three sections (Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) together, but to get them all together with their families was awesome.

It was an absolute pleasure to work alongside some incredible individuals who collectively create an unstoppable team to put on such brilliant events.”

Cub Scout Leader, Tom Johnson, added “The organisers all had a great time and are very pleased with the end result.

We couldn’t do this without the support of the parents and have some great volunteers on our team, but always seek to grow our team to expand skills and knowledge and provide the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers with adventures and experiences they will remember for the rest of their lives.

Please get in touch with us if you feel this is something you could offer.”

Alongside the barbecue, catered by Phil and Jess representing Scouts, cake decorating and activities took place on the paddock field, which saw members all joining together and enjoying time with other Scouts.

A fundraising raffle for the Cubs Community Impact badge was also held, with cllr Walley drawing the tickets and presenting prizes.

A friendly face from the past, ex Scout Leader in the Group and now District Explorer Scout Leader Dana Heath, also offered her support and came along to help the organisers out at the event.

She said: “Fantastic event filled with lots of happy Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, siblings, and parents.

Massive ‘well done’ and ‘thank you’ to the team of leaders who planned and organised the event.”

Ruth concluded: “We would like to thank everyone for their support, including but not limited to Freehay Village Hall for use of the venue, St Chad’s Church at Freehay for the use of their car park and the Group Executive Committee. Have a lovely summer everyone.”
