November Obtained cottage in Horse-Shoe Lane as clubhouse
January 14 A performance of "The Scouts' Pantomime", written by J.Burges.

The "Bristol Times and Mirror" said,

"The Scout's Pantomime was charmingly written and staged & altogether free from the stiffness & conventionality of similar pieces. The boys throughout did well, the larger parts being given to Scouts Trotman and Stock, who spoke and sang their parts naturally & clearly. The low comedy parts of Scouts Newman and Codrington were excellently performed and most amusing."
