Save our Scout Group


The pictures today are not mine but are courtesy of the website of 3rd Gee Cross (Holy Trinity) Scout Group

The same January storm that destroyed some of our fencing and uprooted a large tree at the bottom of the avenue also did immense damage to the scout hut on Hill Street.



The group is now operating out of Holy Trinity Church.

Scout leader John McKenna tells me
We are fighting hard to raise £120,000 being the cost of a new headquarters. To do this we need as much support and backing that we can get; to date we have had a good response with one ex member actually donating from his own pocket £5,000; that along with £1,600 from ward funds and £1,000 from the Gee Cross WI if we can keep that level of support going then it is every chance we should be able to have the new building started, if not completely finished this year.
If you want to support their cause please visit their website.
