5th Risca Celebrates 75 Years!
By Rhys Bennett

This year we have two big anniversaries to celebrate – 50 years since our Scout hut in Risca was built, in its current location, and 75 years since 5th Risca was set up.

We had planned to celebrate these milestones by having a party where we wanted to bring together past and present Scouters but COVID-19 put a stop to that!  Hopefully this can be rescheduled for the future.

To mark these important occasions, we have invested in our building and the Scouts were tasked with coming up with ideas for a design which will be painted onto the large shipping container outside the hut.  Our outside space is going to be further enhanced by some fruit trees that will be planted, which offers the perfect opportunity to bury a time capsule!

A 75th anniversary badge has also been given to all our leaders and young people which can be proudly worn on our neckers. 

Finally, I have also spent many hours creating a digital archive of all the photos and memorabilia so that these memories can be shared with everyone and kept for future years.  This work is ongoing and I hope to present this on our website soon; if you have any photos or memories you would like to be added then please get in touch (
