THE rock wall was just one of the attractions as Scouts from the Royston area enjoyed a "day to remember" to mark 100 years of Scouting.

More than 100 boys and girls, from six-16 came together from four Scout groups to take part in the fun day at Roysia School, which featured a range of activities, and ended with an evening camp fire for Scouts past and present.

Michelle Renwick, district chairman for Royston, said: "We wanted it to be a day to remember. The Cubs and Scouts spent the morning doing challenges, which went down very well despite the rain.

Then the Beavers joined us in the afternoon, when we had a bouncy castle and sideshows."

The camp fire was attended by many familiar faces who have been part of the group in the past.

The current crop of Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts provided the entertainment, singing songs and performing party pieces.

Mrs Renwick said: "Hopefully everyone involved will remember it for years to come.
