About us

We are very proud of what the group achieved YESTERDAY , as this made the group what it is TODAY, and we are also very excited for what TOMORROW will bring.

About Us

First established in 1929, we are a long established, diverse Scout group based on the fringes of the beautiful Holmwood Common, run by a welcoming and enthusiastic volunteer adult team with a collective ethos to have fun, whilst learning new skills and to develop characterful young people within our community.

As a member of our Group we hope, and will endeavour to ensure that your child can help to make the world a better place. Scouting makes a positive contribution to society by helping young people to develop as active members of the community who:

  • Are self-reliant,
  • Are caring,
  • Are responsible,
  • Show commitment.

They do this by:

  • Taking part in a variety of activities and new experiences,
  • Exploring the outdoors,
  • Participating in teams,
  • Taking responsibility,
  • And of course, having lots of FUN!
Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
