Roll of Honour & Successes

There have been many years of success for 1st Frankby Greasby Scout Group, for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts alike in District and County Competitions.  This list will continue to grow into the future (and hopefully as people recall from the past also) as we bring the Young People of the Group through the sections and encourage and support them in their Scouting adventure as well as learning new skills and putting themselves to the test against other groups …… of course it’s all about the taking part and experience, but not forgetting the delight and pride in winning or being placed as runners up in these events …….
