Help tell the story of Scouting in Grayshott

100 Years at the heart of Grayshott Community

Grayshott Scout Group has been at the heart of the local community since 1911, and we want to ensure that precious memories and valuable records are not lost for ever. As we develop our archive, we are eager to hear from local residents willing to share their memories, photographs, uniforms, badges, or other documents that help tell the story of Scouting in the village.

Party Marquees Available to Local Residents

If you need additional weather cover for an event this summer or autumn, Grayshott Scout Group now manages the marquees that were formerly available from Party-in-Grayshott.

We have three sizes of Gala marquees: 10M x 4M (qty 2), 6M x 4M and 4M x 4M (1 each). They come with all the guys, pegs and bungees needed for erection, and full instructions. We do not offer a  construction/dismantling service – we ask that you collect and return them (clean and dry!).

They are available to Grayshott area voluntary organisations and residents. We ask for a donation to Scout funds when borrowing the marquees. Funds raised from the donations support your village Scout group, and provide a fund for repairs and replacements to the tents each year.

Contact us to find out more.

Inspiring the next generation of horticulturalists

Thanks to Hidden Gardens of Grayshott 

Back to face-to-face meetings after lockdown, the first order of business has been to give our outdoor space a spring clean, and get our younger members involved in some horticultural activities.

We are very grateful for grant support from Hidden Gardens of Grayshott, which has enabled our Beaver colony to learn about the environment and plant sunflower seeds – earning their gardening badges in the process. The Hidden Gardens of Grayshott grant paid for the planters, compost, seeds, and equipment to help us inspire the next generation of gardeners.

Thank You!

We are now actively recruiting for adults to join us for just a few hours each month

Be Part of the Future

Grayshott Scout Group has been at the heart of the local community for more than 100 years, with adult leaders and helpers always being an integral part of that story. Without them, the Group simply wouldn’t exist; and the more we have, the more we can share the work and enjoy it.

We are now actively recruiting for adults to join us for just a few hours each month. We are keen to find people with any of the following skills:

  • Leadership – taking the lead on activities and events. Motivating our young people and getting the most out of them.
  • Organising – planning events and activities.
  • Communication – keeping parents in touch with activities.
  • Administration – supporting our leaders, giving them more time focus on delivering an exciting programme.
  • Other practical skills – e.g. sailing, building, arts & crafts, music, bushcraft… Anything that you feel would be great to pass on to the next generation as part of the adventure of Scouting.

So, if you or someone you know could play a part in supporting Grayshott’s young people to develop new skills and have fun along the way, please get in touch at GrayshottScouts@gmail.com or call us on 01428 606570. With your help we can continue to grow and offer the people of Grayshott (young and old) the opportunity to challenge themselves and develop skills for life within a fun and supportive community group.

Paying our respects and raising money

Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday is an important day in the calendar for our group. We’re really proud of our Beavers and Cubs who joined the village to pay their respects today.

We also raised more than £240 towards the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal to help support serving and ex-serving members of the armed forces community and their families.

Afternoon Tea with Grayshott Cub Scouts

Silver Sunday

Silver Sunday is a day of fun, free events across the UK for older people to connect with communities and make friends across the generations. 
We’re very proud of the work our Cubs put in to make their afternoon tea event a success, and it was a great opportunity for them to meet our older residents, learn some local history, and contribute to our community spirit.
Special thanks also to the following local organisations that helped us make the event possible: Grayshott Parish Council, The Cabbage Patch, Grayshott Pottery, Pins & Needles, Scarlett Rose, Luff’s, Condie Tree Care, Vic Cracknell, Warren Powell Richards, and From The Air.

There is plenty of indoor and outdoor space, toilet and kitchen facilities, and limited parking. We can supply tables/chairs. A modest donation to the scout group would be appreciated!
