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.

 

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.

Party Marquees Available to Local Residents

Grayshott scouts have a number of Marquees that can be made available to local residents. Ideal for garden parties and community events. We do not offer a construction/dismantling service – we ask that you collect and return them (clean and dry!). A modest donation to the scout group would be appreciated!

Jubilee Hut - a useful village venue

Use our Scout Hut for meetings and events

When not being used for scouting activities, our scout hut offers a useful local venue for community events, meetings, and children’s parties. 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!
