Our Group is located in Andover, Hampshire.
The Group began in 2002 (the year of the Queens Golden Jubilee), with the Beaver section and a year later with Cubs and finally in 2005, the Scout Troop.
On the 17th July 2012 the Group celebrated their 10 th birthday, each member of the pack was awarded a badge for the back of their scarf which had been designed by Dominic Hart.
The Scout Association offers everyday adventure and activity to almost 400,000 young people in the UK. It's the largest co-educational youth organisation in the world, with over 28 million Members in 216 countries and territories.
40,000 Scouts from around the world attended the World Jamboree in the UK.
Scouting is organised through The Scout Association and has a clear purpose:
To help young people acheive their full physical, intellectual, social and spritual potential as individuals, as responsbile citizens and as Members of their local, national and international communities.
The 23rd Andover Group is working to achieve this with the voluntary help of Leaders and Parents with the support of the Group Executive Committee.
