Children FROM the 34th Ayrshire, 1st Mauchline Scouts, Cubs and Beavers have appeared in a special video to say ‘thanks’ to NHS and key workers.

Scout members took to their doorstep to clap, sing and dance as a way of showing their appreciation to workers, with one member even performing a special rendition of ‘Over The Rainbow’.

Graeme Strawhorn, Group Scout Leader, said: “This little video is an excellent reflection of the dedication within the group and the fun we all have together. Importantly, the message of respect for everyone out there working to support our community embodies one of the core principles of our Scout Law.”


Scotland is in lockdown, shops are closing and newspaper sales are falling fast. We’re not exaggerating when we say that the future of the Cumnock Chronicle, and the vital local news service we’ve provided since 1901 is under threat.

Please consider supporting the Cumnock Chronicle  in whatever way you can – by paying just 90p for a copy of the paper, when you’re shopping for essential supplies for yourself and others, or by subscribing to our e-edition here.

Thanks - and stay safe.
