1st Methlick Scouts kicked off their centenary year celebrations with a ceilidh on Saturday.

The event held at the Beaton Hall was a real hit with the community.

In September the Scout group will celebrate 100 years of being part of the community.

Scout leader Keith Hewitt was pleased with the ceilidh: “As well as just a fundraiser it was more a social occasion to start our centenary year.

“It was a nice event to get everyone in the party mode and I think we have raised probably in the region of £500.

“We will hopefully have a event each month in some shape of form.

The group has been a vital part of the village over the years.

He added: “We have always been an important part of the community for 100 years now.

“There are many people that still live in Methlick that have a connection with Scouts, be that the owner of the garage or shop they are all ex scouts.

“I think we play our part in village life and try to educate young people life skills.”
