The oldest scout troop in Chorley is looking for the help of its former members in order for a written history to be produced.

Chorley United Reformed Church Scouts started life in February 1919 when it was known as Chorley Congregational Sunday School Scouts.

They still meet every Friday in the school attached to the Church in Hollinshead Street, Chorley.

Derek Haslam, a church member is trying to write the history of their Scouts and would like the help of former scouts.

He said: "We have more than 90 photos of the Scouts which I have managed to collect but there must be many more out there in Chorley and we would like to copy them to include in our book.

“Unfortunately whilst we have the photos we don't know when they were taken or who is on many of them and this is where the public may be able to help us.

“We would like to put them in chronological order but without knowing when they were taken - we cannot do that.”

To this end, they are having an ‘Open Day’ on Saturday, October 25 from 10am - noon in their school room when all their photos will be on display.

They will also have a printer there to make copies.

This is a free event and coffee will be available.
