Scout news

1st Hungerford Scout Group will be holding their Annual General Meeting on Thursday 3rd September, 7.30pm, by Zoom.  All parents and friends of the Group are welcome to attend – if you are interested but not already on our mailing list, please contact us for the Zoom link. 

Obviously this term has been very different to normal, with some virtual meetings and sharing of “The Great Indoors” lockdown activity programme provided by The Scout Association.  This has included back-garden camping, indoor dens, family hikes and wildlife spotting.  By the AGM, we hope to have a much clearer idea of how the various Sections can return to meeting face-to-face once more.

We welcome boys and girls from age 6 as Beavers, from 8 years as Cubs, and from 10.5 years as Scouts.  If you would like to know more about Scouting for your child, or how you could become involved as an adult helper, please contact

Group Scout Leader, Matt Head                  1sthungerfordscouts@gmail.com
