The 6th Greenock and District (1st Gourock) are looking forward to celebrating their Centenary year in 2009.
On Sunday 23rd November 2008 and as a build up to their celebrations, they attended the Morning Service at Old Gourock and Ashton Church where former Chief Scout Sir Garth Morrison KT.CBE. DL, now Hon President of the Scottish Scout Association, presented them with new Colours.

The old Colours were presented to the Group in 1958.
