Sharing Scouting stories

Eight people attended last week’s opening of the scouting exhibition. In this photograph, Howard Anderson was sharing a funny story from the gang show days.  Howard told us that in its heyday scouting and guides involved about 10% of Patea’s population.


Remember the scouting movement wasn’t just about the boys, we now have some great photographs of the girl guides and brownies  from the 1960s in the exhibition.
