Celebration for Ted Hughes

At our open day on 7th May we took the opportunity to celebrate Ted Hughes being a member of the Charlton Kings Scout group for 75 years since becoming a scout as an evacuee in 1941. He has since been a senior scout, leader and committee member and still finds the time to help the marquee team around running archery sessions each week.

It was formally opened on the 15th June 2015.
