On 1st January, 1970, the Estreham Venture Scout Unit joined forces with the Livingstone Venture Scout Unit to form the Estreham Livingstone Venture Scout Unit. Just a few months before 1st January, 1970, the 1st Streatham VSU had joined forces with the Estreham VSU as they only had six members.
The Estreham VSU was attached to the 1st Streatham Common Scout Group based at the Scout Hut in Estreham Road, a short walk from Streatham Common Railway Station. The Livingstone VSU was attached to the 3rd Streatham Scout Group who were based at Woodmansterne Primary School off Stockport Road at the other end of Streatham Vale.
The new Unit met twice a week. One night at the Estreham Road Scout Hut and the other at Woodmansterne Primary School.
One of the primary aims of the "new" Unit was to reach out and offer Venture Scout activities to the wider Scouting community in Streatham where some Scout Groups did not have their own Venture Scout Units.
After a couple of years as the Estreham Livingstone VSU, the Unit "rebranded" to the more manageable "Streatham Venture Scout Unit".
