As part of their 100th birthday celebrations, 1st Shirley Scout Group invited the Mayor of Solihull, Mrs Flo Nash, to unveil a plaque to commemorate the event.
She was piped into the Headquarters by the Shirley Pipe band, was welcomed by the current GSL Tony Fitzgerald and took part in a flag break before unveiling the plaque.
The event was attended by Group members, both old and current including 4 GSL’s. Displays from each section of the group plus several items of memorabilia were on display.
After the unveiling of the plaque a special cake, which included a neckerchief and a copy of the Groups 100th birthday badge both made from icing, was formally cut by the oldest and the youngest member of the Group.
