Some good news from Leiston Scout group – it has grown considerably over the past year, the Beavers even have a waiting list! With this increase comes the need for more team members to keep all sections running so if you have a few hours to spare to inspire youngsters and help them develop confidence, independence and life skills why not apply? See page 11 for more details.
A very well done to the Long Shop Museum for being awarded a prestigious Red Wheel plaque by the National Transport Trust (NTT). This recognises the importance of the Long Shop in the context of Britain’s unique transport heritage. That is not all the museum has to be proud of – Elizabeth Garrett-Anderson was the first woman in England to qualify as a physician and surgeon and her daughter Louisa was a leading suffragette, as was Louisa’s aunt – Dame Millicent Fawcett. Trail-blazing women! Do go along to the museum if you haven’t recently.
