A tent forms the appropriate centrepiece of an exhibition on the history of the Scout movement, running at Paisley Museum and Art Galleries until May 8.

A Century of Scouting celebrates the 100th anniversary of the organisation which was established in 1907 when its founder, Lord Robert Baden-Powell, held a week-long camp for 20 boys "from different social backgrounds" on Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, Dorset.

At the camp, the world's first Boy Scouts learned how to build huts, lay fires and cook, as well as hearing a talk on "chivalry to women". Three years later, Baden-Powell's sister, Agnes, set up a parallel organisation for girls.

The exhibition will focus on the history of local scouting groups, who have lent uniforms, photographs and camping expedition log books. They will be on hand to give practical demonstrations in the garden behind the museum.
