Early History

A 9th Huddersfield Group was first registered at Primrose Hill Baptist using the Baptist Sunday School as a headquarters on the 19th March 1928 (Reg: No: 18221) The Scoutmaster was a Rev. G N Graham and he had 6 Scouts in March which had increased to 8 Scouts in October 1928. The Group Registration was cancelled in 1934.

A second 9th Huddersfield Group at St John's, Lepton was registered on the 13th March 1936 (Reg: No: 17821) giving the address of the HQ as the Parochial Hall, Lepton. The Cubmaster/GSM was Kathleen Procter and she had 12 Wolf Cubs.

The real 9th Huddersfield was actually registered as Crosland Hill Methodist on the 10th July 1946 by Margaret Hirst assisted by Trevor Elam (whose name was then crossed out) with 12 Wolf Cubs. The words 9th Huddersfield were added later. The Group was originally Sponsored (by the Methodist Chapel) but there is a note that the Group became an 'Open' Group in 1968.

There is more, lots more..........

The Wolf Cub Pack was joined by a Scout Troop in 1949 and a Senior Scout section was added in 1959 which became a Venture Unit in 1968. In 1974 and 1975 there was no Venture Unit but in 1976 we had 2 Cub Packs, a Scout Troop and a Venture Unit which then continued in this form until 1982 when this information ceased to be recorded.

Thanks to Neville Broadbent for researching the above. Any more, Neville?

Since this Group was closed I keep this site going as a tribute to the Group, its former members, and because of the vast amount of resources I built up over the years. To lose all this would be a travesty. I do all this at my own expense.

Should you find the site helpful and want to donate, please do so.
We're here to help - Scoutese in Plain English:
SL - Scout Leader - the person in charge of the Scout Troop;
Prefixes: G(SL) - Group (Scout Leader) - co-ordinator of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts [& Explorers];
Prefixes: C - Cub - i/c Cub Pack; B - Beaver - i/c Beaver Colony; E - Explorer - i/c Explorer Unit;
Prefix: A - Assitant - someone who helps the Leader.
