Have your say

Fascinating pictures showing the early days of scouting in Hemel Hempstead have been unearthed in Hunton Bridge.

The images, which have been passed on to the current Hemel Hempstead Scout District and the Dacorum Heritage Trust, were supplied by Alan Knight of Gypsy Lane.

A treasure trove of archive information in his possession includes the very first minute book of the 1st Hemel Hempstead (St Paul’s) troop which is celebrating its centenary this year.
