In the early years of the 20th century, Robert Baden-Powell, a famous army general, developed a scheme for training boys. He tried out his ideas at a camp on Brownsea Island in 1907 and the following year published them in a book, Scouting for Boys. The book was an instant success and boys throughout the UK enthusiastically took up Scouting. As a result, Baden-Powell soon found himself organising the Boy Scout Movement. At the Scouts' first rally, at the Crystal Palace in 1909, a small group of girls turned up. They represented hundreds of other girls and insisted that they wanted to be Scouts too.
The traditional values and requirements of the Scouts and Guides have changed very little over the years and now New Forest Log are helping to replace many of the origin huts as they were called or meeting places, with modern buildings made completely from logs and using traditional building techniques in harmony with the requirements of UK Building Regulations.
