He and a Mr Pratt and headmaster Mr lambton were the founding members.

In the early 30's Mr W. G. Henderson, an insurance agent became Scoutmaster, he had been a scoutmaster at 1st Herrington; The Group's name changed to 1st Burnmoor and they still met in a building near the current Burnmoor filling station. Mr Henderson fought in the war with the RAF and was killed in action in 1944.

Herrington ScoutsAfter the war another 1st Herrington assistant Scoutmaster became 1st Burnmoor Scoutmaster, his name was Mr Robert Forster, a coal mine fitter at sixth pit. He became known as Skip. The group now met at a old chapel hall near the beck at the top of the dip, down from the current scout hall.

 

 

When the NCB hiredopen hall hall at Lambton, had it's lead pinched and the group decided they would try to build their own HQ. Local people and businesses raised money, along with the group, they purchased some land for £400.00 from Lord Lambton.
