1st ARNSIDE SCOUT GROUP

By the kind permission of Dr. J. F. Dow, the gardens at his residence, “Uplands,” Red Hills, Arnside, were open to the public on Sunday afternoon when a collection was taken for the funds of the 1st Arnside Scout Group.
About 140 people took advantage of the opportunity to see the beautiful, well-kept gardens and the collection realised £3 7s. 6d. During the afternoon the Group Scoutmaster, The Rev. Elphin A. Ellis, on behalf of the members of the group, presented to Dr. J. F. Dow, a “Thanks Badge” for his continued interest in the Group. Dr. Dow suitably
replied.
