Milestones

In the 1980's and 1990's

The Group stabilised in size after the baby boomer peak period. It continued to attract members of all ages of both sexes.

In the mid 2000's

The Group reviewed its strategic plan to ensure that it continue to succesfully operate, even though it recognised that it needed to upgrade its facilities. In 2007, the Scout Group proposed to the City of Unley, with the support of the Cities of Burnside and Mitcham that a Community Recreation Centre be built on Ridge Park. The Scout Group would lease rooms in that facility for its operation. This concept was not accepted by the City of Unley.  So the Group had then to find incremental methods of upgrading its facilities under its own fund raising.

In recent years
