Gang Show Programme Extract:
The following text has been taken
word-for-word from the 1987 Show programme. Although the text was
relevant at the time, it may not be relevant (or current) now.
The Gang, the team, the family -
names or titles meaning a group of people of all ages gathered
together for one united purpose. The purpose in this instance is
Scouting and Guiding.
Part of the Scout Law states that
"A Scout is a brother to all Scouts"(1).
What is noticeable and encouraging is that this part of the Scout
Law is portraying itself in the cast of the Gang Show. Everyone is
helping one another, there is a bond of friendship which has been
evident in all three Gang Shows. At the same time, although hard
work, it is all very enjoyable.
It is interesting to note that out
of the present cast of 125 members, 23 members have taken part in
all three Gang Shows, ie, '83, '85 and '87; and 61 members took part
in the '85 Gang Show - and they all must be enjoying it!
Apart from the fact that there are
approximately 240 parents involved, the following are further family
statistics with regard to the 1987 Gang Show:
