Plymouth & South Devon Scouts celebrate Founders Day 2023

Plymouth and South Devon Scouts recently celebrated Founders Day in style, with young scouting members sporting their uniforms to school across the city. The event was supported by a range of schools, including Marine Academy, Plymouth High School for Girls, Woodford Primary, Ernesettle Community School, Goosewell Primary Academy, St Peters RC Primary School, College Road Primary and many others, all of whom encouraged their students to wear their uniforms as a mark of respect for the founding of the Scouting movement.

The celebration was part of a wider movement that saw members of Girl Guiding donning their Rainbows, Brownies, and Guides uniforms to celebrate Thinking Day. From Squirrels to Leaders, Scouting members of all ages took part in the event, wearing their uniforms to work, university, and even on the school run.

Founders Day is an annual celebration of the foundations of Scouting and Girl Guiding, held on the birthdays of Robert Baden-Powell and Olave Baden-Powell, the founders of the two organisations respectively. This year’s celebration was particularly special, as it brought together members from across the city to mark the occasion in unison.
