OH the days as young boys growing up when we used to try to earn badges instead of being transfixed to a television screen or games console.

We have decided to take a trip down Memory Lane by delving into our archive and dig out some photographs of the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers throughout the 1990s and early 2000s.

Being part of the movement taught us all skills for life such as working as part of a team and just generally having fun as a group even when we were camping out in tents.

So we have found some great images from around Bolton of the young people doing a wide range of activities.

St George’s Day events, fundraising for good local causes, playing football and even trying to learn how to put out a fire are all featured in these photographs.

We have created an online gallery with more fun-filled images of being in the Scouts throughout the years on our website so check them out to see if you can spot someone you know in any of the photos.
