Scout's Honour!

Build a bridge? Head off on a nature walk, play a few games, enjoy the sausage sizzle – that's how the local Scouts will join more than 30 million of them in 160 countries to mark the day when Robert Baden-Powell started the movement in 1907.

It'll all happen in Frank McAllister Park at Araluen between 9 and 12 on Sunday, February 26.

If you're no longer under 18 but still youthful and keen to be involved?

"Great! We’re looking for leaders too.  Come on down and find out how you can help shape the future," says spokeswoman Sharon Hutton.

Meanwhile today Sally Thomas AM made her Promise that she would be the Chief Scout of the Northern Territory.

The former judge is now the Administrator of the NT. She made her Promise in front of Chair of the Northern Territory Annie Black and the Chief Commissioner of Scouts NT Shane McCorkell (pictured).

In 2011, Scouting and Guiding combined had over 41 million members worldwide.

All groups meet at the Alice Springs Scout Hall on Larapinta Drive (on the right just past Lovegrove Drive when heading west).

Joeys (6-7 year olds) Thursdays 5.30-6.30pm; Cubs (8-10 year olds) Thursday 7.00-8.30pm; Scouts (11-14 year olds) Tuesdays 7.00-9.00pm; Venture Scouts (14-18 year olds) Thursdays 6.45-9.00pm.
