The 14th Winchester Scout Group is flourishing with two Beaver colonies and two Cub Packs with emergent plans for a second Scout Troop to accommodate those youngsters who will move up in the years to come.

We draw from several villages in our area including South Wonston, Worthy Down, Sutton Scotney, Micheldever and Barton Stacey. Our youngsters have the opportunity to meet others from the three main primary schools in our area. The Group is active within the local community holding big events like the South Wonston annual fireworks display, or helping other groups run theirs, such as manning a water station for the Clarendon Marathon.

Our enthusiastic leaders work hard to provide an exciting and challenging programme of activities and events – from knot tying and fire lighting to nature hikes and geocaching, archery, camping and trips to Brownsea Island – and have as much fun as the youngsters do!

Our growing Executive Committee of non-uniform parents supports the Group by looking after the financial and administrative side of things to fund all our varied activities.

We support a range of District events, most importantly St George’s Day and Remembrance Day Parades, but also attend Camps and Challenge Days with other Beavers, Cubs or Scouts. Our Cub Pack won the District Cub Athletics Competition in 2016 and the County Football Tournament in 2017!

History – The 14th Winchester has been linked for many years to the Worthy Down base and we continue to serve the children of Service personnel across our community. We reflect this long standing relationship in the names of our Cub packs, which are named after aircraft that used to fly out of Worthy Down.
