The History of Bishopsteignton Scouting

We are very excited to be helping with this project, which is to be part of a Duke of Edinburgh’s Award scheme undertaken by one of the Explorer Scouts. Many of the artefacts and photographs of scouting memorabilia that had once been in the Bishopsteignton Museum are now in the possession of the Scout group, and we shall be assisting with the project in terms of training in researching, archiving, interviewing, scanning, and uploading onto the Bishopsteignton Heritage website.
