Group Picture November 1999

This picture was taken, we think, after the aniversary service in November 1999

Peter Armitage

Here are four pictures sent in by Peter Armitage. Peter wrote in his email

'I joined the 18th Edmonton Cubs group in 1960 Akela was Mrs Soley, then went on to the Scouts (scout leader Peter Rider) and finally was one of the first members of the Venture Scout group formed by Peter Charlesworth in 1970.

I was sorting through some old photo's and came across some I took forty years ago of the scout group. This photo shows some of the members of the early venture scout group. Back row Peter Charlesworth, unknown, John Staples and Gordon Cowley. Front row Peter Armitage, Doug's daughter, Keith Whitlem and on the piano Doug (unknown surname).

The camping photo's were taken at Tolmers camp site probably in 1970 or 1971. The only name I can remember is Andrew Warren who is shown walking towards the camera in Tolmers2.jpg.

Thanks Peter for sending these in.

1985 Venture Week

Does anyone know anything about this picture?

It had a piece of paper with it titled 'Venture Week 1985 Minehead 18th Edmonton Cubs' together with the Butlins logo. Our Cubs have obviously been joined by the Cubs and Leaders from another Pack, but which pack? Pat Powell tells us that the leader in the middle is our CSL at the time Beverley Payne.
