Share post:

EDNA?MAYNARD of Durant’s Village, St James, showed her delight when the West Terrace Scout Group, Northern District, surprised her with a basket of assorted gifts during their Christmas outreach yesterday.
She was one of the three lucky senior citizens who were visited by the group of cubs, sea scouts and members of the drum corps under the direction of scout leader Michael Broome.
Broome said the hampers were put together by the parents of the youngsters and the gesture would be an annual one.
