Finchley, Friern Barnet & Golders Green District badge

We’ve made a huge amount of progress with our project to document the history of the old Finchley, Friern Barnet & Golders Green District. You can see the results so far at

On this website there’s now information about 28 Groups and sections, King’s and Queen’s Scouts, Achievements, and St George’s Day Parades, with lots more to come.

We’d love to hear from anyone with information about the District, so please get in touch. This could include anything from personal memories and stories to historical documents and photographs. We’re also interested in hearing from anyone who may have memorabilia from the District, such as uniforms, badges, or plaques.

We are particularly interested in hearing from former Scouts, leaders, and volunteers, so if you’re in touch with anyone please ask them to contact us.

To share your information, memories, or photos, please email

Look up your local Scout Group, because you’ve got a safe, practical community who will encourage and support you.'
