Scout-and-about in new minibus!

by Tom Martin (July 2022)

A SCOUT group based in Crosby has replaced its age-old minibus with a much-needed new vehicle!

The 12th Crosby (St Luke’s) Scout Group, on Endbutt Lane, was successful in getting a donation from West Lancashire Freemasons Charity.

The new minibus replaces its previous one, which was 23 years old and according to members was “becoming a bigger challenge each year” to keep on the road.

A spokesperson said: “Crosby  has benefited from having a minibus for the past 15 years, making it available to a variety of other scout and youth groups, charities, and schools in the area.

“The last minibus was over 23 years old and keeping it on the road was becoming a bigger challenge each year.

“The recently purchased new minibus with its many modern refinements and seating 16 passengers has been well received by those in need of bulk transport.”

A presentation was held when the minibus was handed over to the scout group by members of West Lancashire Freemasons.
