Richard Wilkinson, aged 19, has followed in his family’s footsteps by joining the association.

His father Mike is the Weare and District leader and there is a long history of scouting in the family which stems back to his great great uncle founding a group in Wigan in 1908.

Richard, whose brother Andrew is also a scout, and fellow member Mike Turner have both recently been presented with their warrants, which means more group outings and activities can be planned.
