1st Turramurra Scouts

20 October 2020

Mr ALISTER HENSKENS (Ku-ring-gai) (18:21:16): I congratulate the 1st Turramurra Scout Group on its 100th anniversary. Since 1920 it has been providing young people between the ages of 8 and 25 with incredible opportunities for adventure, learning, friendships and fun, all in a safe and supervised environment. Many of its members have volunteered for the RFS and the SES. They have been members of the Armed Forces. They have provided community service to our local area, including organising Anzac Day services, which I have attended over the years. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the group's centenary celebrations have been postponed until next year. I congratulate all members for this milestone and wish the 1st Turramurra Scout Group good luck for the next 100 years. Scouts is about getting kids away from devices and back into nature. Like many community groups, they rely on the families and volunteers to run the organisations effectively. I thank everyone involved in Scouts for giving time to our local community and I encourage anyone—young or old—to support their local Scout group.
