Our Group Scarf

Each uniformed member of the Scout Group wears a GROUP SCARF. The colours have been specially chosen to remind us of the historical importance of Furnace Green in the development of Crawley.


Many years ago, before the area that we know as FURNACE GREEN was developed into a housing estate, the whole area was covered in forest. CHARCOAL BURNERS would work in the forests.


The BLACK on the scarf represents the CHARCOAL that was produced in this area.


The RED reminds us of the FIRES burnt to produce the Charcoal
