Centenary BBQ 2014

62nd Centenary BBQ June 2014


Over the course of the afternoon, the field was stuffed with the whole of 62nd enjoying themselves. Live music, provided by Mr Shaun, climbing wall, (imaginative) inflatables, face painting, tasty burgers and sausages, cool drinks and gorgeous weather.

Most important of all though were the visitors.

We were exceptionally proud to have 9 descendants from the founder of 62nd Scout Troop, from granddaughter to great granddaughter joining us. Not only this but a past Cub Leader from the 60’s, recent past Cub leaders, past parents Scouts, Cubs, Beavers, Exec members and friends, including probably our oldest Scout who was with us in the 1940’s.

Thank you all for joining us and making it a very special occasion! ..
