SCOUTING AT 3rd HAZEL GROVE 1963/4
Six clips taken from the 8mm film collection of Aart Cornelissen (Skip) who was the Senior Scout Leader at 3rd Hazel Grove Scout Group circa 1963/4. This period was a critical stage in the development of the Group as it concluded with the opening of its self build Scout Headquarters which took place in October 1964. In 1974 the Headquarters were extended and both phases still provide excellent facilities for a thriving and active scout community.
