"Memories of Normanby Methodist Boy Scouts"
- 25 Oct 2021   

     Colin Stewart sent a Message to our website with his memories of his time in the Normanby Methodist Scouts group.
   Many lads growing up in Normanby will have joined the local scouts.
   So this new Article  was created to record, show and publicise memories of those who were boy scouts in the Normanby Group.
   Initially it contains Colin Stewart’s memory plus some photos from our archives.
   It is a work-in-progress - dependent on contributions from our members and from readers of this website - so please help.

  It would be wonderful to be able to share
any stories and photos you have -
- so please Contact  us
(with Subject as Normanby Boy Scouts Memories )
with your stories and offers of photos.

Tom Towers:
Sad News from Normanby Local History Group - 2 March 2021  

  It is with great sadness that we announce that Tom Towers, our group’s Honorary President and former Chairman, passed away suddenly on 29th January at his home in Normanby.
  Tom’s funeral took place at 1:15 pm on Wednesday 24th February at Normanby Methodist Church followed by cremation at Kirkleatham Crematorium.
  Due to Covid restrictions the service in the Church was for family only.
  A good few friends (and group members) paid their respects outside the Church, keeping social distancing in mind.
               Rest in Peace Tom.

  Tom’s family were happy to allow his funeral service to be streamed via Zoom. This virtual "Meeting" was opened a few mins before the service was due to start and enabled some 20 people to attend the service "virtually".
  The minister has kindly provided a recording of the service that is now available on this website via our video  page.

   A Tribute from our group has been added on Tom’s tremendous contribution to our group and community.

   There is also a section for any Personal Memories & Tributes that you may wish to submit.
