Annual General Meeting

The Group’s Annual General Meeting will take place on the evening of Monday, 24 January 2022. All parents are warmly invited to attend. You will have an opportunity to hear reports on the 2020-21 session. We’re currently reviewing whether we should have an in-person meeting or opt for a meeting via Zoom. If you’d like to attend, please contact the Group Chairman (via the ‘Contact’ page) and he’ll ensure that you receive full details once they’re confirmed.

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!

Glad you asked!  Please don’t guess; you may be asked to move badges that are out of position.2015cu-as-ath

Here are the official badge placement diagrams from The Scout Association.
