The Scout Group now have almost 60 children attending the weekly Groups – 25 Scouts, 24 Beavers and 11 Cubs.
Hodnet Scout Group were successful when applying for grants to buy new camping equipment.  This equipment was purchased at the beginning of the year and has been used on a number of camping weekends by all the children.  The fundraising and increased subscriptions have meant the children can do a wider range of badges and recently the Scouts enjoyed an evening Caving at an old Roman Copper mine at Llanymynech in Wales.  The Group have also been helping the local community and were heavily involved in organising the Jubilee Celebrations in Hodnet earlier in the year.
