methlick Scouts Minibus
Scout Minibus - "Scoutie"
The Group minibus, sponsored by Nexen, was won in a Press and Journal newspaper competition in March 2018. It is the property of 1st Methlick Scout Group and is available for use by other registered charities or not for profit groups/organisations in the village of Methlick and surrounding area only. It has 17 seats including the driver’s seat. Drivers must be between 21 and 70 and hold a D/D1 entitlement on their licence as a minimum.
After a competition involving all youth and adult members of the group, ideas were submitted to name the minibus.
Entries were received from all sections, and then whittled down to a shortlist.
From the shortlist, a vote was taken by all members, and the result was selected!
In February 2019, our minibus was christened "Scoutie".
Well done to the Beaver Scout who submitted this name suggestion!
