Gala Day Thank You

Many thanks to everyone who attended the Gala Day procession on Saturday – and thank you to parents/guardians who helped their child be there.


The Scout Group had a terrific turnout which was brilliant!


Hip hip hooray!



REMINDER: Whitburn Gala Day – Saturday 23rd June

We are meeting in the car park behind Brucefield Church at 10.15 am.  We ask that everyone is smartly dressed with Scout jumper or shirt, necker, dark trousers and shoes.  The forecast is looking good therefore it looks like jackets won’t be needed.  As good Scouts we are prepared; ponchos are at the ready!


Everyone can be collected at King George V Park – Park View/Bog Road end – at approximately 12 noon.  Look out for the Group flags.


Juice and some sweets will also be available during the parade.


We know it’s a busy day; we know some kids will be walking with their school or other organisations; but if they can walk with the Scout Group, please encourage them to walk with the Scout Group.  Let’s show Whitburn how strong Scouting is in the town!

REMINDER: Beaver Scout Outing to Blair Drummond

The bus for tomorrow’s trip to Blair Drummond Safari and Adventure Park leaves Brucefield Church at 9.30 am tomorrow – Saturday 26th May.  We intend being back at the Church for around 4 pm.


The forecast is looking very good, but please can we remind everyone that UNIFORM IS REQUIRED.


As is a packed lunch – preferably in a backpack to leave hands free – and there is a shop which will no doubt be visited.


Any issues or concerns, please get in touch.

Leader Training – Well Done!

Congratulations to Peter McGuire Jnr (left) and Zack Renwick (centre), both Sectional Assistant Leaders – Beaver Scouts, for completing all their leader training.  They were presented with their Wood Badges at the Group AGM on Thursday 10th May by West Lothian Deputy District Commissioner Colin Thorpe.
