Who we are

Our Scout Group was the third Group to be formed in Romsey District in 1909 soon after Baden-Powell started Scouting in 1907. During this period there have been times that the Group has been non operational, however since the 1970s it has been an active and enthusiastic Group.  Information on Romsey District can be found here

We now have three sections:-

Beaver Section
Cubs- Kumasi Pack
Scouts – Ashanti Troop

The Group have a varied programme – cooking over open fires (some of it edible!), swimming, pottery, walks, cycle hikes, training, badge work. too much to mention here! There are also Romsey District activities which can include 1st Aid weekends, night hikes, activity days, camping competitions, to name a few. The Group is well represented at Romsey St George’s Day Parade, Braishfield Remembrance Day Parade, holds a late Summer tea party for the pensioners and are always willing to help out at local events.

We aim to give all young people the chance to learn self reliance, self confidence and develop their skills in dealing and working with different people through the Scout award system and the Duke of Edinburgh Scheme.

July 14th, 2017

We spent the evening making bivvies – then sat in them whilst the Leaders checked to see if they were waterproof!

Quizzical evening

May 21st, 2017

Thank you all for coming last night. It was enjoyed by all, especially team ‘Ken Dodd’s Dad’s Dog’s Dead’ who managed to take the day.

A huge thank you to Nick and Jess for the compilation of a great quiz.  James for the artistry and yes the gold lame got another outing!  Finally to Julia for all her hard work in bringing everything together and chasing up some brilliant  prizes.

We raised just short of £300.00 for the Group.

Well done to everyone.
