An Oxfordshire scout group has finally been able to celebrate its 110th birthday after postponing due to Covid.

1st Bicester Intrepid Scout Group marked its 110th anniversary at is headquarters in Ashdene Road, Bicester.

The event was due to take place in 2021 but had to be put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Last month's celebrations began with a long-service award presentation to leaders Gerhard Eilertsen and David McGarrity, for their 40-years of service.

Colin Whitlock, who stepped down from the committee after 36-years of service also received an award, as did Clive Winston for his support in maintaining the grounds.

The group, which delivers scouting to around 100 young people at any one time, also created a badge to mark the anniversary.

Jill Edwards, the Group Scout Leader, said: "The global coronavirus pandemic didn't stop the groups meeting as we all went online, but it did put the kibosh on our plans to celebrate 110-years of scouting in Bicester.

"However, things are back on track, and we were delighted to be able to finally celebrate this anniversary together in person.

"Our success is down to our committee members and leaders. 1st Bicester has been lucky to have so many good leaders and committee members over the years."
