Boy Scouts in Montgomeryshire.


Boy Scouts in Montgomeryshire. A Scout Council for the County was formed at Welshpool, on Monday, 7th November, to promote generally the welfare of the movement, and to arrange for harmonious co-operation. The meeting was held in the Town Hall: and all the social associations of Boy Scouts in the county were represented except Llanidloes and Newtown. In the unavoidable absence of the Lord Lieuten- ant, the chair was taken by the County Qommis- sisner, Brigadier General A. E. Sandbach, and he was supported by Mr Whitehouse, Dr Thomas, Mr R. Hughes, Rev W. H. Williams, Major W. M. Dugdale, Mr J. Marshall Dugdale, Mr Sadleir, Mr Baston, and the Misses Bonnor-Mauiics. It was decided that the Scout Council should consist of two elected representatives of each local associ- ation, with the President and the County and District Commissioners. It wAs explained that the first meeting was held at Welshpool because they formed the first troop in the county there, and it was agreed to hold the next meeting in 1911 at Machynlletb. Various camping arrangements for 1911 were discussed, and it was finally decided to try a com- bined camp next year of all the troops, not to leave to each troop its own provision of blankets. tents, etc. Several gentlemen wrote regretting their inability to attend the meeting. There are now eight troops numbering 188 Boy Scouts in the County.
