We are seeking information from past members and the general public to enable us to compile and publish "The First 100 Years of Scouting in Epping". Are you able to assist with the research, production and compilation of what we hope will be a memorable part of Epping's Scouting history? If you are able to assist in any way, please contact us at email@example.com. There would be a lot of useful information in people's heads and their homes. We need as much of this as possible to ensure the most accurate history of the group.
We are also compiling a list of past members and others who are interested in being involved with the centenary celebrations. Please send your contact details, along with information about when and how you were involved with the group.
The following sections and groups will be included as they are all a part of the history of this group.
From our research so far, the following groups have existed in the Epping area over this period.
This information will be updated as it becomes available.
