Echuca Scouts unveil new group

By Jared Prestwidge

THE 1st Echuca Scouts recently introduced a new group to their ranks that cater to men and women aged 18 to 26.

The Mal White Rover Crew, named after resident Mal White, offers an opportunity for adults wishing to stay within the scouts system. 

Before the Rovers were introduced, scouts' only option when they turned 18 was to become a leader or not continue at all. 

First Echuca's Mekaela Hopson said the Rovers welcome people of any experience from anywhere in the region. 

"We've got four Rovers at the moment, and we would like to have at least 10," she said. 

"We wanted Rovers a few years ago but no one put their hand up to take control and now that the four of us have, it's all ready to go."
