Our Group  
 

Xgħajra was a small fishing hamlet and a summer resort, situated in the East of Malta.  Its inhabitants are increasing and it is slowing developing into a large seaside village.  Back in 1995, Xgħajra Scout Group opened the doors to boys who would like to join the World Organization Scout Movement. 

On the 9th of November 1995, a meeting between SDC Mr. L. Bonnici,  GSL Mr. S. Borg, the first mayor of Xghajra the late Mr. France Minuti, the late Xghajra local council secretary Mr. C. Camilleri and Mr. V. Abela a member of the local council was set up to discuss the beginning of Xgħajra Scouts Group and the initiative to allocate premises to the Scout Organization to cater for children and youth.  

Saviour Borg was the founder and first Group Scout Leader.  

On the 17th of November 1995 the first meeting was held.  The first four members were Christopher Vella, Christian Vella, Marcel Borg, Gordon Borg and Mr. Saviour Borg which was the founder and first Group Scout Leader.

During these first years our activities were mainly concentrated to build up a consistent number of Scouts and for the first year the number reached up to 30 Scouts and Cub Scouts.  It was a very encouraging era followed. The continuation, year after year, month after month, day after day, meeting after meeting the group was reaching a higher number of members.

The Troop Section and the Cub Scouts Section were admirably developed, while the continuations of the activities were turning the group into a very active one.   

On the 28th of June 1996, the late Chief Commissioner Mr. J. Grech approved the registration form and Xghajra Scout Group and was officially registered with the Scout Association of Malta.

In 1999 the Venture unit was formed and during the year 2000, the group admitted its first female members.  This was a step forward for the group since this section was providing an innovative leadership strategy.

In 2004, Xgħajra Scout Group, invested in another dream of many Scouters, the creation of a Band.  The band was formed from a few members with a small amount of instruments; but in a small period of time, it advanced and it then evolved into a pipe band.  On the 29th of January 2012, Xgħajra Scouts Pipes & Drums made itself heard along the stress of Xgħajra for the very first time. 

The tenth anniversary of Xgħajra Scout Group was celebrated in 2006, where plenty of celebrations were organised by a temporarily committee.  This committee was formed from the chairman of the group Mr. Simon Grixti and two Scouters Mr. Marcel Borg and Mr. Glenn Abela.

The Xgħajra Scout Group Website was then launched on the 5th of December 2008. 

In 2014, the group accepted its first members of the Colony, and thus the Beaver Section was formed.

At the beginning of 2019, a temporary committee was formed to organise the group's 25th anniversary celebrations.  The committee consists of the group scout leader Mr. Marcel Borg,  chairman Mr. Rene Fava ,cashier Ms. Julie Grech, two Scouters Mr. Duncan Debattista and Ms. Janice Preca, and two venture scouts Ms. Mariah Gauci and Ms. Stephanie Paris.

We are currently experiencing a global pandemic, however our scouting spirit lives on digitally as online meetings are still being held regularly. 

Every day, every activity, every meeting is a story in the History of Xgħajra Scout Group.
