Many residents in North Tyneside have been affected by the flash floods which hit the area on Thursday 28th of June and unfortunately our Scout Groups have not escaped either.

The 4th Tynemouth and the 8th Tynemouth both saw their Group headquarters filled with water destroying lots of equipment and damaging the buildings.

The damage to our meeting places and equipment was bad enough but Esther Pearson, Scout Active Support Unit secretary, has unfortunately also suffered when her home was flooded.

Our thoughts are with all of you as well as the countless others caught up in the floods.

The night after the floods the Group managed to put on some sort of programme as normal.

Keep calm and carry on Scouting!
