THE 23rd Stretford St Matthew’s Victoria Scout Group held an inaugural evening of celebration recently.

The event recognised the work of young people in their development goals and the dedicated volunteers who give their time to the group, which has doubled in size over five years.

The Mayor Cllr Dylan Butt, who attended the evening, said, “The life skills and team work they learn through community projects are of real benefit not only to them in their future development but also to the local community.”
