The 1st Ripley Scout Group marked 100 years of Scouting in Amber Valley at the weekend with a whole host of exciting activities to celebrate the landmark day.
There were heaps of Scouting memorabilia on display for the general public to enjoy and numerous activities being held throughout the day, including the opening up of a 30-year old time capsule and the burial of a brand new capsule for future generations to discover.
