This year the 1st Ripley Scouts are celebrating the centenary of their formation in 1914. As part of these celebrations the group has donated a seat to Ripley Town Council. The seat is situated at the side of Ripley Library replaces an earlier one which was donated in 1984 but had since deteriorated and been removed by the Council. The unveiling ceremony was performed by the Deputy Mayor of Ripley, Councillor Tony Tester. The picture shows Cllr Tester with the Ripley Scouts.
