1st Sarisbury Green Scout Group
We provide fun, educational and character-building activities, following the balanced programme of The Scout Association for Beavers, Cubs & Scouts.
At 1st Sarisbury Green we are lucky enough to have our own purpose built headquarters in Burridge. The Dave Young centre for Scouting Excellence known as Dave’s Lodge, named after a well respected Scout Leader.
We are the oldest group in Fareham West, with our recorded start date of 1943, but we have photos suggesting it was earlier. AE Roberts was our group founder.
We pride ourselves in creating a welcoming and supportive environment for young people to develop their self confidence and independence. We provide a broad programme of challenging and fun activities. This includes traditional adventurous scouting activities, hobbies shared by our members and neighbours, and an endless range of unusual activities which we may never do more than once. All our young people learn to take responsibility for the safety and well-being of themselves and others, and we provide a safe environment where the young people can learn from their mistakes.All of our young people have the opportunity to experience nights away from home, whether camping, or just sleeping overnight at our headquarters all times of the year
1st Sarisbury Green Scout Group can only offer these activities due to the support of the fantastic Leaders. All their time is given voluntarily, and the teamwork of the leaders is great, linking between sections to offer the best experiences to all. If you would be interested in joining the team, please contact either the GSL.
