Hospital Scout Troop
The Scout Troop at Harlow Wood Hospital is understood to have been formed around 1931.The Scout Leader was Ron Briggs from Sutton-in-Ashfield
In 1946/7 Frank Meridith of Warsop is recalled as the Scout Leader.
“Mr Frank Meredith of Warsop used to cycle every week to take us on Ward One for Scouts, after he had been to work all day. Obviously like the work Miss Bestwick (teacher) did, we didn’t appreciate it at the time, now we realise what kind people they were. A Cousins – former patient.
