The Acle Scout Group, who meet at Aycliffe Village Hall every Monday and Thursday evening, were presented with a new flag staff and Union flag by the Mayor, Cllr Jed Hillary, on 9th February. Jed noticed the Scout Group had mismatched flag staffs at the Remembrance Service held at St Andrew’s Church last November. A member of the Baden Powell Scouts himself as a youngster, Jed undertook to source a new flag to present to the Scout Group. Jed commented “I’m immensely proud to be able to give something back to a youth organisation that gave me so much, back in the 1970’s. There’s truth in the saying once a Scout, always a Scout.” said Leader, Margaret Lenehan, thanking Jed on behalf of the Scouts.
