The Group History

The 2nd Mortlake Scout Group was founded on 11th June 1919 and has occupied its current building since then. The annual photographs around the walls of the hut are testament to the success of the Group over the years. They also commemorate the hundreds of volunteers over the decades who have enabled generations of young people to benefit from all that Scouting has to offer.
