An open day held in Boston recently helped a Scout group find new recruits with a variety of activities for young people and their parents to try.

The Fifth Boston Scouts held their first-ever open day at the group’s Castle Street base and secretary Michelle Garrard said the ‘fantastic day’ resulted in a number of new members.

Those who attended could try out activities incuding outdoor baking, fire lighting, camp demonstrations and Aboriginal art.

Michelle said: “The turnout was good and the day went really well.

“The weather held out. The parents also got involved - in fact I think some of the parents learnt more than the children!”

The group are considering running further open days in the future - with the event potentially becoming annual.
