OUR SCOUT GROUP
Scouts were started in Little Gaddesden in 1911, so we have a long history, and were one of the first Scout Troops in the country.
The Group in its present form has been running continuously since the 1960’s, and now has sections for Beavers (6 and 7 year olds), Cubs (8, 9 and 10 year olds), and Scouts (10½ to 14 year olds). We take boys and girls from Little Gaddesden and the surrounding area, and we operate a waiting list (from age 5 years) as we can be oversubscribed in the Beaver and Cub sections. The majority of our youth members are boys, as there is also a Brownie Pack in Little Gaddesden catering for the girls from age 7 to 10 years.
Our Scout Group is part of the West Herts District, and in turn part of the Hertfordshire Scout County. We participate in District and County events from time to time, and run our own events and camps, as well as our weekly meetings.
We have our own HQ building where most of our meetings are held.
Scouts meet on a Thursday evening, from 7 pm or 7:15 pm (times vary).
Beavers meet on Fridays at 5:15 pm.
Cubs meet on Wednesdays at 6:15 pm.
All leadership in Scout Groups is voluntary. We have a team of 11 Leaders for the 3 Sections, and we also rely on the support of parents for our Executive Committee; and for extra help with our activities. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please get in touch with our Group Scout contact, Tim Cooper (phone and email contact details above).
We can use help on a regular or ad hoc basis. All our volunteers are CRB checked.
