Ms Morgan said it was an amazing group of 14 to 18-year-olds.
“We have 23 Venturers at the moment and five leaders,” she said.
“With five leaders these kids get to experience so much that we can offer them.
“Three of their leaders have also achieved there Queen Scout many years ago and have a lot of years of scouting service, which is why the unit is so successful today and thriving.
