We are trying to put together a Group History, and we would like to find out as much as official history from yourselves, before we ask the towns people what they can remember.

Our group is 1st Halesworth, in Waveney Valley, Suffolk. We know we were officially registered as a Group on 7th November 1935. Were there any other groups in Halesworth, or surrounding villages which may have merged into Halesworth?

Would it be possible to find out things like all the leaders that have been through the group and who actually started the group?

We are currently located on Chediston St, - it look as if the first Patrol met there, we also met in London Road, where else.

Any information would be gratefully received.
