Brief History of Drig Scouts

The group have used various locations around the village to meet before the hut was built. The rooms above the stables of the vicarage, old cycle HQ on Bradford Road, Mechanics Institute on Wakefield Road, The Liberal Club on King Street, Paint Shop at the bottome of Whitehall Grove, The School and the Barracuda being the last place before our current HQ.


David Slack the chairman of the Group thought it would be a good idea if the village had a Scout and Guide hut, so he asked the villagers if they would buy a brick each for a pound. The new headquarters was built by leaders, local businesses, friends and relatives, and a Mrs Forbes actually gave the piece of land that the hut currently occupies. The Hut was opened by David Slack in 1978.


The original scout neckerchief for Drighlington Scouts and Cubs was all one colour of green, but it was changed to gold with a black edge for a new start in the new HQ, and is the colour of the neckerchief now.
