1st Irthlingborough keeps on growing!! - January 15th 2011

It gives the Group great pleasure to announce another leap in membership numbers this year.

The group has experienced growth this year of +35% or 35 new members joining us from 2009 to 2010. This growth brings our total number of members to 136 (this excludes sectional helpers).

All three sections have grown this year:



•    Beavers grew by 44%. They are the largest section again this year with a total 46 young people, only 2 away from capacity.


•    Cubs have grown 23% consolidating their 2nd pack night. They currently have 38 young people.

•    Scouts saw growth of 20% and they are in the process of building their 2nd troop night.

•    Adult member numbers have grown by 20% on last year plus we have the introduction of the new SAS section which will start officially next month

Congratulations to all Leaders, Helpers and Group supporters on another outstanding year. Thanks to you all.
