Mystery Trip Photos

wmo-mystery-trip-front-blur-for-websiteOur Explorer Unit joined two other local units in February 2016  for a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark.

Their destination was kept a closely-held secret from the announcement about the trip in August 2015 until around 44 Explorers met at Edinburgh airport on the day of  departure.

Check out the 28th Giffnock ESU and Warrior ESU Facebook pages for some great photos from this memorable trip!

Questions about the Group?


Have you ever wondered…

  • how the Group raises funds, and what they’re used for?
  • where to attach new badges on a Cub uniform?
  • how you can help as a Parent?

…..or anything else for that matter?

These and other questions are answered in Frequently Asked Questions.

You can also use the search box shown on the home page to find just about anything on the site.   Try searching now for “Kilts”, “Kit List”, “Race Night” or “Jumble Sale”.

If all else fails, you can use this page to contact various Group leaders and just ask.

How can I help?

Much of the Group’s success is down to the hard work of the leaders, who give of their time freely to plan and run weekly meetings, camps and other activities. They are supported in that work by the Group Executive Committee which is responsible for maintaining the Scout Hall and providing the camping and activities equipment used by the sections. For details of how you can help, please see the note titled How can I help? (A Guide for Parents).

How much does it cost to run the Group?

The Group Executive Committee is responsible for maintaining the Scout Hall and providing the camping and activities equipment used by the sections.

In a typical year the costs involved in maintaining the Hall and purchasing equipment are:

Expense Cost (£)
Maintenance of Hall (Repairs, Redecoration, etc) 7000
Cleaning 1600
Heating and Lighting 2500
Telephone 200
Insurance 1600
Equipment (New and Repairs) 1200

This is equal to approximately £70 per young person.
