New Scout groups are set to open in Renton this year.

The 1st Renton Scout Group have announced they will be opening two groups to local young people in the coming months.

Announcing on Facebook, the Dunbartonshire District Scouts said they are thrilled to launch the new groups that will help young people develop valuable skills, build friendships, and make a positive impact in their community.

Initial plans are for a Beaver Colony open for six to eight-years-old and a Cub Pack which is for eight to ten-year-olds.

Both clubs are a preview to the Scouts which is open for 10 to 14-year-olds.

Documents collated by the Scouts Heritage Team show that the last record of a unit in Renton is a registration sheet form from 1976.

The earliest recorded document is from 1930. 

However, members of the public have added to this recollection with memories of a Cub Pack which existed in 1990.

1st Renton Scouts Group have set their sights on opening in September and is asking people to get involved.

The group are inviting anyone interested to join as a member or a volunteer to fill out a form via their Facebook page or send them a message.

The Beaver Colony will run on a Thursday Night from 6pm to 7pm and the Cubs will run fifteen minutes later from 7.15pm to 8.30pm.

The clubs will be hosted in St Martin's Church Hall and will be open to both girls and boys.
