The first Baden-Powell guild picnic was held.
75 years of cub scouting celebration – the big trees on the main field were planted. Later in the year was the Willesley 40th anniversary camp – visited by Garth Morrison Chief Scout.
This was the first district camp at the site. Each group had to clear their own camping plot.
The campsite website (www.willesley.org.uk) was redesigned and relaunched by Jonathan Ince.
The chlorination plant was fitted.
The crate stacking activity was first set up. Central heating was installed into the gatehouse.
The Oakthorpe Colliery winding and headstock arrived at the site (this is now located outside the Wardens caravan). Also, the second Wardens caravan was purchased. Later in the year, the church was reopened.
