Peter Springthorpe

It is with sadness that I have to announce the death of a former Chairman of Ruislip District Scouts.  Peter Springthorpe who recently passed away aged 83.

He was Chairman of the 2nd/9th Group from 1973 and then took on the role for the District in 1977 until he retired and gave the baton to Nigel Boardman , who has also sadly died . A service was held at St .Martin’s Church Ruislip on September 7th and many Scouters were present.

I remember him well as I served on the Committee with him and found him to be not only extremely able but also kind, courteous and most gentlemanly. He got us to work so well as a team so that we ended up with the right results and decisions.
