The Headquarters

Our current headquarters was built in 1969 by two professional bricklayers, Leaders, Families, the Guild and the Scouts themselves.

It was officially opened on the 17th of September 1969 by the newly appointed County Commissioner, Lt Com C.G. Lestock Reid D.L.

The photos below show some pictures of the "hut" as it has change over the years.

The tents at the back of the building were set up as part of a display for parents during an Annual General Meeting.

The aerial photo shows the "hut's" location and was taken by Mick Barber in 2003.
