Horsham Scouts celebrate 100th anniversary | Video, Photos

PAST and present Horsham Scouts came together to celebrate the troop’s 100th anniversary at the weekend.

The celebrations included a march through the city, a plaque unveiling and a family fun day.

Horsham Scouts’ Jacqui North said the celebrations all went to plan.

“We had the march on Saturday and we had a great turnout of participants,” she said.

“We had Scouts from the second and fourth troops and a few past members put on their old scarves and marched as well.”

The march went from the Horsham RSL to the scout hall.

“We got to the hall and there was so many people there,” Mrs North said.

“We have lots of people from the community and interstate visitors as well.”

Mayor Heather Phillips unveiled the plaque and Graham Hutchinson, son of Horsham Scouts founder Robert Hutchinson, cut the cake.

Inside the hall was a display of old photographs, videos and memorabilia.

“So much work was put into the historical display and it was wonderful,” Mrs North said.

The celebrations continued with a family fun day on Sunday.

“We had a good turnout and the children had a ball,” Mrs North said.

“We also had some new inquires for people wanting to join scouts.”

Mrs North thanked everyone who donated items and memorabilia for the celebrations.

“Thank you to everyone who came along to, without everyone’s support, we would be able to do the things we do,” she said.
