There has been Scouting for over 85 years in our Village. For over 20 of those years the group has been known as the 9th Winchester, and for over 15 years they have enjoyed having the addition of Beaver Scouts. The Group now covers the villages of Twyford and Owslebury.

Our lively group met for many years in the local parish hall. Now our Cubs meet mostly in the local Methodist hall while our thriving Beavers and Scouts meet in the Colden Common Community Centre. Even though we currently have no permanent home, we still provide a wide range of activities for young people, the leaders and their families.

We are actively seeking a place to build a new headquarters to provide both scouting opportunities and use by the local community. A lot of hard work has already taken place on behalf of the group and we are confident that it will not be long before we are able to realise our dream to have a home of our own.

We have a large white marquee which is available for hire by members of the village and other organisations and we will happily talk to you about how to go about making use of the "big white tent", together with arrangements for putting it up, taking it down and of course a donation for its use, to help the group grow. Please use the link above to find out more about how you can support and/or join the group or book the marquee.
