Grave Dedication

16th May 2009

As part of the research into the Group’s history, it came to light that our founding Scout Master, George Greenacre, was buried in an unmarked grave in Preston cemetery.

With the permission of George’s son, Mr Leslie Greenacre, arrangements were made to place a marker on his grave, for all to see.

The dedication took place at the grave side during the weekend of the Group’s 94th anniversary and was presided over by the Reverend Canon Jim Robertson, the Area Dean.

There was an excellent turnout from the Group, along with members families and various other members from the District. The event made the local press, with a full page in the Evening Chronicle, which can be found by clicking here.
