1st Midlothian (Gorebridge) Scout group was formed on the 11th March 1911 and we celebrated our 100th birthday in 2011. We held a series of special events over the past year and hope that the group will continue to prosper and live to see another 100 years. During our 100th year we also had two of our members from Network obtain their Queen Scout Award, the highest award in scouting, which was very good publicity for the group.
Each of our sections are very active and the leaders are all enthusiastic at teaching the youngsters the ways of Scouting towards each of the different age groups.
The Cubs, Scouts and Explorers also take part in residential activities like camping at Borthwick Campsite, going to Glencoe and Carrbridge for Hill Walking weekends. Each Christmas we also have a whole group outing to the Pantomime which is always great fun for the youngsters.
We at 1st Gorebridge Scouts accept both boys and girls in all of our sections.
