1st Ascension Island Scouts


We have been away to Europe twice in the last 10 years - `89 and most recently 1996.

We were away for over 6 weeks. We stayed in Northern Ireland for half the time with The 1st Portstewart Scouts, our very good friends.

In 1997 we were very glad to have the 1st Portstewart Scouts come to stay with us on Ascension. 36 of them came for 2 weeks at Easter, we had a fantastic time together and made some friends for life.
