About Us

You can visit the 1st Ash Vale page on the Ash Museum website here for more information on our group history and to see images of the group from their archives.

Our Group

1st Ash Vale Scout Group is a member of the Blackwater Valley District within Hampshire Scouts. We have thriving Beaver, Cub and Scout sections and the group is one of the oldest and most active in the district. We opened additional Beaver and Cub sections in 2017, meaning we now have greater capacity to give young people the opportunity to attend Beavers and Cubs on either Monday or Tuesday evenings.

Group History

1st Ash Vale Scout Group was founded in 1938 by Rev H C Aubin, the priest in charge of St Mary's Church, Ash Vale. The group's first Scout camp was held in Glastonbury in 1939. The Scouts originally met in the church hall at St Mary's, but later a plot of land was acquired and the existing Scout HQ was erected in 1965. We celebrated our 80th annviversary in April 2018.
