Scout Notes

Alastair Cram – Gone Home 

The District was saddened to hear that Alastair Cram passed away recently after a long period of illness.

Alastair was a Scout in the 70th before taking on leadership roles in that Group at an early age, rising to SL in the late 1960s and GSL thereafter.

As well as leading a successful troop, Alastair played a significant part in the establishment of the present 70th HQ in Finnart Street.

Throughout Alastair’s time with the 70th camping played a significant part with summer camps at home and abroad including two trips to Denmark – one by sea and one by air.

Alastair was also involved in training at District level and took leadership roles in national Explorer Belt trips eventually taking on the role of District Commissioner for Greenock and District for several years before moving to Glasgow.

Generous Gourock Beavers

1st Gourock Beavers visited Mount Kirk church to hand over eight boxes full of presents for children who aren’t lucky enough to get gifts at Christmas.

The Beavers also gave a contribution to the Inverclyde food bank. All of the Beavers behaved incredibly well. Well done.





From the 70th for 70 years…

The 70th beavers toasted the Queen and Prince Philip on their 70th wedding anniversary.

Also thanks to Inverclyde Skywatchers for helping some of our Beavers complete the space badge,
