THE team behind the St Minver Link community magazine has supported local Scouts with a donation of £300 to help repair their hut at Rock.

Link's chairman Brian Crank said: "This brings the total donated to local people and local good causes to more than £12,000 in recent years, a figure we're very proud of."

Stuart Robertson, who is celebrating 25 years as a Scout leader, said the Scout section of the 1st St Minver Scout Group had now reached a record membership, with 45 boys and girls aged 10 to 14.

"Our young people have a wonderful progression in the group before they reach us in Scouts," he said. "Beaver Scouts starts at six years old and encourages our youngest members to enjoy a great programme of activities and adventure.

"Next is Cub Scouts for those aged 8 to 10 where they continue with the fun and learn more skills and take part in different exciting activities.

"By the time Scouts start at ten years old, they've been part of the 1st St Minver 'family' for some time."

One of the group's Scouts, Ormy McWilliam, has been chosen as part of the Cornish contingent to the World Scout Jamboree in Japan next year.

He is now faced with the task of raising £3,000 to finance the trip.
