1st Ash Vale Scout Group was founded in 1938 by Rev. H. C. Aubin, the priest-in-charge at 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.
The Group recently celebrated its 75th Anniversary in 2013.

Scouting is really great to be part of, and The Scout Association offers fantastic opportunities for young people to take part in new experiences and learn useful life skills. Our Leaders try to incorporate all elements of the program into their meetings and regularly take part in District and local community events.
It’s really great to see young people of all ages having fun, experiencing new challenges, achieving goals and making new friends.
