History Project

Can you help with our history project?

Paul CanoeingThank you for taking a look at our History Project, my name is Paul and I was appointed Group Scout Leader of the 1st Shireoaks (St Lukes) In January 2020.
Currently, we are trying to build up a written and photographic, history of the Scout Group and Scouting in the Village of Shireoaks.
We would like our readers to help us by sharing any memories they have about the Scout Group, some pictures would be appreciated, although not originals
We are hoping that in time this history could be added to our website.
This is very much a work in progress project, we feel that it’s important to capture our history as you need to understand where you have come from to move forward in the right direction. After all, you will be aware of the quote “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.
Any help and information would be welcome, were you a past member? Do you have any memories or photos you could share with us, please? if so please contact us.
Please contact us using the contact us option, or tweet to @1stshireoaks or email paul@1stshireoaksscouts.org.uk
