Scouting is a movement that aims to support young people in their physical, mental and spiritual development, that they may play constructive roles in society, with a strong focus on the outdoors and survival skills. During the first half of the 20th century, the movement grew to encompass three major age groups for boys (Cub Scout, Boy Scout, Rover Scout) and, in 1910, a new organization, Girl Guides, was created for girls (Brownie Guide, Girl Guide and Girl Scout, Ranger Guide). It is one of several worldwide youth organizations.
Lawrie Dring was one of the founding members of our Federation and always guide us all in to the traditional scouting. He was a true Scout and will always be remembered as such, as he goes home to join the campfire of B.-P.
We will all miss him and our scouting family will be much poorer without his experience and enthusiasm.
