    To explain my tag it’s the headquarters of The Woodcraft Folkhttps://woodcraft.org.uk/ a throughly lovely youth organisation .

    In the 1920s despite Scouting for Boys being rewritten some felt Boy Scouting was too militaristic and split off to form The Kindred of the Kibbo Kift.
    This group then had a further schism and The Woodcraft Folk was started.who are still going with 25,000 members apparently.
    The Woodcraft Folk are supported by The Co-operative Society hence the Brixton Cycles hint.

    The Kibbo Kift developed into a political organisation expousing a universal minimum wage https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kibbo_Ki­ft
    They had a paramilitary wing The Greenshirts who tangled with the BUF blackshirts. When marching in uniform was banned they marched carrying their shirts on a coat hanger .

    The Kindred of the Kibbo Kift had a bit of a branding issue.

    Yes, it did feel a bit like being in enemy territory. I also got a copy of the magazine for my teenage son who took it to school to read in front of a teacher who was known to be “on the square”
    The small market town I grew up near had 5 lodges and 3 Royal Arch Chapters so mason taunting was part of my upbringing.
    I’ve been invited to join on 3 occasions.

    I hired a meeting room at the Metropolitan Police sports club there were magazine dispenser stands in the bar filled with the magazine for London Freemasons.

    Thought I would make it obvious to get it going again.
    The significance is linked to the last tag and my clue .
