Girl Guiding Thinking Day - Sunday 26th February 2017

The Cross Roads Brownies and Rainbows joined groups from across the district at the recent Girl Guiding Thinking Day at the  Keighley Shared Church. Our village was represented by children from Lees Primary School, including Ruby Thexton, Sophie Breakwell and Lily McEwan who were flag bearers on the day.






Chris Weston

Tuesday 17th January 2017 saw the sad passing of Chris Weston. Known to many in the Cross Roads Scout group - past or present - as Akela.

I'm sure you'll join us in offering sincere condolences to her children Steve, Tanya and Jo. 

Chris joined 8th Keighley Scouts 28 years ago and was active with the group up until the end of last year. Her hard work and dedication benefited many children at our school and in our village.
We hope to plant a tree in her memory in our school field in the near future.
