Friends of Strathaven Scouts was formed in 1995 and now has over 150 members

Our aims are –

  1. To provide financial and other support to the 1st Strathaven Scout Group.
  2. To provide a forum for contact and association between former and present members of the Group through the publication of the annual FOSS Newsletters and by organising social events and Reunions.
  3. To publicise, through the newsletter, the activities, achievements and objectives of the Strathaven Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts.

FOSS is also responsible for the compilation and maintenance of the Strathaven Scout Group archives and as part of the Group’s 100th Anniversary celebrations in 2008 produced a DVD which contains nearly 1500 photographs illustrating the 100 years of Scouting in Strathaven.

Read all about the 100 years of the Group in “A Centenary History” published by FOSS in 2015.
