Cambridge: 1934 – 1935

Cambridge District Scout Archive

On 5th June 1935 Cambridge District split into four Districts. It had been working as three sub districts for a year before the split. The apparently late addition of West Cambridge moved some groups from Cambridge and South Cambridge. North Cambridge was renamed East Cambridge and then quickly became Mid Cambridgeshire.

The following Groups stayed as part of Cambridge District. North Cambridge, later East and later Mid Cambridge was reabsorbed during WW2. The late addition of West Cambridge took some Groups from North Cambridge and some from Cambridge.

Some Groups were redistributed to West Cambridge in 1935.
