Congratulations to Diane Ross on being awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours in recognition of her service to Scouting and to the community in Edinburgh.
Diane was a Leader for the Cub Scout 80th Birthday item in the Edinburgh Gang Show 1996, was instrumental in the organisation and running of the Junior Gang when it was established in 1997 and remains an ardent Gang Show supporter.
Her leadership and commitment to Gang Show, as well as many other responsibilities in Scouting, is inspirational. Thank you Diane for your service and here’s to many more years of Scouting fun!

Due to the sale of the former South East Scotland Scouts HQ at 15 Valleyfield Street last year and with recent notice being served by the new owners that the Edinburgh Gang Show must vacate the premises by July 2018 there is an immediate challenge ahead for Gang Show management.
New premises are urgently required to accommodate the vast costume, scenery, archive store and other assets acquired by Edinburgh Gang Show over the past 58 years. The storage space required to accommodate costumes alone is approximately 60 square metres.
A negotiable annual budget is available to rent a suitable facility. It is hoped that new premises can be found to ensure the long-term continuation of the Edinburgh Gang Show in its current format.
For further information about this situtation or to offer support please contact Alan Hunter, Regional Adviser (Gang Show) on 0780 893 9589.
It’s November so it’s Gang Show time! Edinburgh Gang Show returns to the King’s Theatre.
