So Many Memories of Scouting Days Gone By

Article excerpt

Byline: Naomi Corrigan Reporter

THOUSANDS of Teessiders have fond memories of their girl guiding or scouting days.

Among them is the 1st Redcar Scouts, pictured before heading to Holland in 1980 for a camping trip, as well as a litter pick at Redcar beach by the 1st Dormanstown Guides in 1988.

Scout leaders no longer need to know how to tie a knot, and new badges include Information Technology and Public Relations.

The Guides, now call themselves Girlguiding. In their new Promise, the words "to be true to myself and develop my beliefs" replace "to love my God", and the words "to serve the Queen and my community" will replace "to serve the Queen and my country".

Last year the youth group took its first step into politics, demanding school lessons in body confidence and equal numbers of men and women in Parliament.
