As Group Leader I would like to thank all who attended our Den opening on Saturday last. A huge thank you to Paddy Quinn and the FÁS team, Marie Clooney and the hall committee, Canon O Doherty, Angela Drennan and Mary Walsh for all their hard work raising funds over the last 34 years and their invaluable work. Thank you also to Delphine for support in recent times. Thanks to Cub leaders also for their work over last few weeks. Thanks to Paddy Lynch CC and Kevin Murphy PC. This project has been ongoing over the last three years and it was a proud moment to finally after 34 years have a place we can call ours. Maureen Campion.

Award: On Saturday our group was again presented our Standard of Excellence, for the fourth year running and is a huge testament to all involved. Raising our standard and maintaining it show the great work and commitment all put into scouting in Durrow.

Spaces available in our cub section at the moment – ages 9 to 12 and scouts 12 to 15 and a half also in Venture Scouts aged 15 and a half to 18. Anyone over 28 welcome as a Rover or Scouter. So if you like the outdoors and would like to join the adventure please contact Group Leader Maureen Campion.
