Zebbug Scouts....

The present Zebbug Scout Group was established on the 10th May 1999 after being dormant for almost sixty years.
*
The founder of the Zebbug Scout Group is Mr. Raymond Spiteri Binett who with a group of leaders (two of which are still active) started out the Group.
*
The Group is the newest member of the central district.
*
It can boast of being the first Group to be officially opened in the Maltese Islands in the new Millenium .
*
The scarf colours are green and yellow, the typical colours of Haz-Zebbug .
*
Yellow is for courage and the Green is for the foliage of the Olive trees that used to adorn the village of Zebbug.

*
As from July 2001 the group for the first time started recruiting girls from the age between 7 and 9 and hence the group became co-ed.
