Wisbech scout unit bids farewell to leader

Mrs Pam Russell, a leader at the 12th Wisbech (Upwell & Outwell) Scout Group, retired from active scouting at a special barbecue and water fun evening involving all the beavers, cubs and scouts.

The evening was attended by guests from other groups plus the District Wisbech (Upwell and Outwell).

The chairman, Barry Evans, thanked Pam for all the time she had given to the young people and presented her with a bouquet. Other gifts from the group included a flowering cherry tree, a fleur de lis necklace and a cake.

The Group Scout Leader, Mrs Beryl Boyce, presented a personal gift as Pam had been a leader with her over 30 years ago.

Pam will continue to have links with the group and was nominated as an executive committee member.
