1985 Meeting at St Augustine’s Church on Richmond Road

Meeting at St Faiths. This last iteration of the 1st Cambridge before a revival as ‘Orchard Park’ eventually diminished to a pack. In c 2000, with a falling membership and a core leadership of one, they started to meet with the 12th Cambridge, itself at a low ebb. The very few boys did not take to the new pack and, in the absence of a resurgence of the 1st, left. The leader, Chris Scott, joined the 14th.

A new group took the name 1st Cambridge (Orchard Park) in 2009. In no way connected with Sea Scouts it is based on the new area of Cambridge to the north.
