Scouting's Sunrise

The strains of Reveille broke the air on at 08:00 Wednesday morning, 1st August to herald the start of the second century of Scouting. The cornet was played by Mark Alston of Ross town band.

Over forty people of all ages met outside the Ross Heritage Centre to mark the occasion by renewing their Scout promise. The ceremony was lead by Cub Scout leader Robin Shaw with readings and prayers written by Robert Baden Powell read by Dave Bennett and John Constance. The Scout and Cub Scout laws were read by Michael Jeffryes and Conor Kearns.

Following the formalities, a welcome breakfast of superb bacon sandwiches was supplied by Callwood's butchers and cooked by the Kings Head.

On 1st August 1907 at 08:00 Robert Baden Powell blew his Kudu horn to open the first experimental Scout camp for 20 boys on Brownsea island in Poole harbour, Dorset. Today there are Millions of Members world-wide covering virtually every country of the world. Nine Ross-on-Wye Explorer Scouts are currently camping at the world jamboree with 40,000 scouts from all those countries.

Organizer Robin Shaw said, 'A brief phone call was received from the Jamboree, and it was fantastic to think that at 08:00 local time all over the world people were doing just what we are doing.'

For details of Scouts nationally see www.scouts.org.uk or for details of Scouting locally contact Dave Bennett on 01989 768062.
