They boasted the second highest growth in the UK in 2011, attracting an extra 700 members.

The county’s scout group council has also been given a £15,000 grant from Notts County Council to support local groups to recruit and retain members.

Cabinet Member for Children and Young People coun Philip Owen said: “Scouting offers children and young people a wide range of activities which are good fun, promote health and fitness, and develop skills for future employment opportunities.”
