Help piece 2nd Bramley Scout’s history together

second bramley scouts

A Bramley Scout group is looking to piece together its long history – and is appealing for former members to come forward with their memories.

2nd Bramley Scout group has been open for more than 70 years, providing fun and adventure to young people and adults.

Deborah Wilson, Group Chair at 2nd Bramley Scouts, said:

“We’d love to get more about the history of our group into our scout hut. We would love to hear from people who have previously attended the group. Perhaps they can help us piece the history together, we are currently looking through lots of old photos, slides and newspaper cuttings.

“The group has recently undergone a major refurbishment and we are looking to welcome old and new members.”

The group is holding a barbecue in July and is hopign past members will also attend.

The group’s hut and grounds in Highfield Street have been undergoing extensive refurbishment over the past year or so. In recent months walls have been re-rendered by Leeds Plastering Contractors and the hut has received new flooring from Polyflor Ltd, fitted by Kendrews Flooring.

Anyone who has memories or memorabilia they’d like to share – or who has children who might like to join 2nd Bramley – can e-mail Deborah on


While you’re here…

Producing your daily dose of West Leeds Dispatch comes at a cost!

There’s the hosting of the website you’re reading now, running our popular e-mail newsletter, membership of independent press regulator Impress, attending summer events, paying for equipment etc etc.

We need at least £200 a month just to break even – that’s money currently coming out of the pockets of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about what’s happening in our communities, connecting you with local groups and organisations as well as holding decision-makers to account and championing local issues.

And all that’s BEFORE we even think about paying something for people’s time – for instance, our editor puts in more than 24 hours a week in his ‘spare’ time to ensure The Dispatch publishes daily.

To put it bluntly, after nearly four years of daily publishing, we are not sustainable!

And we need YOUR help to continue …

For the cost of less than a couple of cups of coffee you can help support local community news and continue to give our communities a voice by taking out a subscription for just £4 per month (that’s just a pound a week).

As a thanks you’ll get your name on a roll of honour on our website. More importantly you will be enabling us to keep bringing you the news that matters about your neighbourhood.

Achieving a bedrock of supporters will give us a firm financial footing and help us plan for the future.
