Penyffordd Scouts recently held a family fun day to celebrate 50 years of Scouts in Penyffordd Village.
The day, which was attended by over 200 current and past members of the Scout Group, as well as members of the Penyffordd community was a huge success and a brilliant way to celebrate 50 years of exciting adventure. Activities available on the day ranged from Bouncy castles, Archery and Abseiling to more traditional Scout activities such as cooking on an open fire.
Assistant Scout leader Graham Cooper, who helped organise the day said ‘We decided about a year ago that we needed to do something big to celebrate 50 years of Penyffordd Scouts, so all of the leaders got together and started to plan the day. So many local people and companies played a big part in the day, many of whom very kindly donated their time for free to help us have a fantastic day. As a group we do so many amazing things throughout the year and we wanted to give a people a little taste of this on the day, we had children on the day coming up and asking if they could join the group because they’d had such a great day which is fantastic, the day wasn’t just about looking at the past 50 years, but about looking to the future of the group.”
