1st Irthlingborough gets local recognition - March 4th 2012

Sunday 4th March 2012 witnessed another huge milestone in the 104 year history of 1st Irthlingborough Scout Group. At approximately 2:40pm that day the Group along with many other Community Supporters in Irthlingborough was awarded a nomination for the 2012 Community Spirit Award. The nomination read:-

"The oldest Youth Group in the town, in one of the oldest organisations - an unbroken timeline going back over 100 years of serving the community in Irthlingborough - there are less than 10 groups in the World that can boast this - something that Irthlingborough is famous for and should be immensely proud"

"The Scout Group nomination is not just for the current generation, but for all those in Irthlingborough that have made Scouting possible in the Community since 1908 - there have been literally thousands of Young People from the town that have served the community"
