(Mickleover) Derby Scout Group
Our purpose built headquarters were
constructed in 2008 for the group that was founded in 1979 by the now
Group Scout Leader Bill Ratcliff.

The photographs below are of our Old Scout Hut. It
located close to the old Derby University Mickleover complex. When the
university moved off their site they sold it to some developers who
wanted to build a housing estate on the whole site. Unfortunately for
them our Scout Hut was in their way. After a lot of long and difficult
negotiations, Bill Ratcliff managed to to get the builders to construct
our new headquarters - at their expense.
That's the good news; the bad news is that the new headquarters costs a
lot, lot more to run than the old one ever did.
