Croydon Scouts mark Founder's Day

4:30pm Tuesday 26th February 2013

The 1st Croydon St Matthews Scout Troop marked Founder's Day with a special service on Saturday.

The annual Thanksgiving service in honour of the Scout movement founder Lord Baden-Powell used to be held at Westminster Abbey, but smaller services in each district now take place.

The service which was being held for the first time in Croydon, saw the Scouts gather to honour the shared traditions and values of the movement.
