8th Holborn was formed in 1908, making us among the first Scout Groups to be registered.
Founded on the street corners of Holborn, the group is one of the last remaining of the ‘cosmopolitan and somewhat unruly’ Holborn District, which was the source of the original Gang Shows and many gallantry medals during the Second World War.
We are currently working to compile a better history of the Group. If you were a member or leader at the group please do get in touch and help us to fill in the missing gaps.
Our official name is 8th Holborn (Lady Peat’s Own) Scout Group.
