STAMBERMILL St Mark's Scout Group has celebrated its centenary anniversary by opening new headquarters on the Timmis Road industrial estate.
Chair Martin Tromans was joined by the Rev Simon Falshaw, vicar of Lye, Wayne Bulpitt, UK Chief Commissioner for the Scout Association, and Margot James, MP, to open the new building. They are pictured right with some of their younger members.
More than 70 members of Stambermill Scouts in Stourbridge regularly give their time to the community, with active Scouts, Cubs, and Beavers groups. Margot James said: "It was a great atmosphere at the opening, exactly 100 years to the day since the group was formed. And I pay tribute to the adults who give their time to ensure that the scouting opportunities they enjoyed as young people are enhanced and passed on to the next generation."
It took two years for Stambermill Scouts to obtain the change from industrial use to community use, in time for the opening of the new Headquarters.
