About

1st Honiton Scout Group was registered on 25 February 1930.

On 4 December 1936 Mr Cottrell gave us the building that we are in. Mr Cottrell worked in London but had a house in Honiton.

We have a Cub Pack named after him. Our other Cub Pack is named Jackson but we are not sure how this came about.

Our Beaver Colonies are named Leonard and Jose after Dave Leonard and Frank Jose who did a lot to help the group.

Our Scouts are the Wall Troop after Phil Wall who did various jobs within the group from treasurer to group scout leader.

We have on average 100 youngsters over our 2 x Beaver Colonies, 2 x Cub Packs and 1 x Scout Troop which meet every week during term time.

The leaders actively engage and support our young people in their personal development enpowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

Baden Powell started Scouting in 1907 and while Scouting remains relevant, educational and exciting today it has not strayed too far from its roots. Outdoors, Adventure, Helping Others and Scouting skills remain the most iconic of its activities.
