To the Trustees of the James Beattie Charitable Trust
Thank you for your kind donation for the 1st Bilston Scout Group.
The James Beattie Trust has kindly supported the 1st Bilston Group for over 20 Years on funding for different projects but mainly with the development of our Scout Headquarters in Bilston.The 1st Bilston is one of the oldest Scout Groups in the world and have been on the site in Bilston for over 100 Years
The Scout Headquarters have continued to change over the time from a former pig sty in the Laburhams Hall to a former 1st World War hall to a purpose brick building. A few years ago the building was set on fire by vandals and the land leased. We now own the building and land and due to other buildings in the area we have to secure the site for generations to come
