Following a recent meeting in Trevelyan Hall with a team from South East Scotland Scouts, a number of parents are keen to reintroduce scouting to Pencaitland.The Trevelyan Hall meeting highlighted the fact that there are waiting lists in the surrounding towns and villages to join cubs, beavers and scout packs, most notably in nearby Tranent and Haddington. With this in mind Scott Burton, local development officer with the scouts for South East Scotland, was keen to encourage parents and other supportive adults keen to help, to try to restart scouting in Pencaitland which lapsed some seven years ago.
Taking Scott’s lead, locals Alison Mells and David Donohoe are spearheading a follow-up meeting in The Winton Arms on the 23rd of October at 8pm.
If you are keen to see cubs, beavers and scouts return to the village now is your chance to help make it happen. Please try and pop along on the 23rd and see how your help can bring back what was at one time a central part of village life.
If you can’t make it to the meeting but would like to be kept informed, please email email@example.com with your name and contact details.
