Gone Home – John Griffin

Hampshire Scouting was very sad to hear of the passing of John Griffin, Group President and former GSL of 25th Northam Sea Scouts in Southampton.

John’s funeral will be on Friday 1st July at 11am, at St Nicolas Church, Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh SO50 9NW. Please do come and join us in full uniform – we have been asked to hold a guard of honour.

Please park at 10:30am in the Concorde Club, Stoneham Lane, Eastleigh SO50 9HQ, and the church is a short walk from the Club. The wake will be held at the Concorde Club afterwards.

John joined the Movement as a Scout in the 1940’s, and then took up a leadership role when he moved to Southampton to study Law at Southampton University in the 1950’s.

As well as his roles with 25th Northam, he was also a legendary Venture Scout Leader and organiser of County Venture Scout expeditions such as Blaze, and was involved in the purchase of Ferny Crofts acting as the legal representative.

Details of John’s funeral service will be posted when they are available.
