Scouting has a massive variety of Activities that can be offered by each section in our Scout Group. To find our what each Section can offer please visit their page on our Website or click BeaversCubs or Scouts.

Please note we don’t have a Squirrels Section for 4 + 5 Year Olds in our Scout Group, For this to happen we would need to have at least a minimum of 3 new Adults to start up this Section each week during School Term Time.

Group Neckerchief / Identity 

All Scout Groups are identifiable by the Colour of their Group Neckerchief. We are one of five Scout Groups within the Melton District who all deliver Scouting Activities for young people to enjoy.

Pictured below are the original colours of our Scout Group from 1997 to 2017 and now showing the change to smaller half borders in 2018 which makes the Sky Blue much more noticeable when folded.

Our Group Neckerchief Colours represent the 3rd and 6th Melton Mowbray Scout Groups. 3rd Sky Blue + Yellow Border, 6th Sky Blue + Red Border. When 1st + 5th Melton Mowbray Merged the Neckerchief remained the same.

If you also scroll to the bottom of the page you can see a picture of our Scout Group Necker folded.

Our Main Meeting Place

Pre-COVID before (March 2020) our Scout Group main meeting place was at John Ferneley College. Once we was able to return to Face to Face Meetings (April 2021), All three Sections at first, temporary held our meetings at Holwell Pastures Scout Campsite. In October 2021 we decided to make this our Permanent Home.

Located at Holwell Pastures Scout Campsite, The Ironstone Lodge Community Building (opened in April 2019) for indoor meetings, is Split into 2 Rooms and provides heating that is warm during the Winter months. There is also a big unisex toilet block, and two large fields and concreted area for outdoor Activities.

The Beavers + Scouts meet on a Wednesday and Cubs on a Thursday.

During the darker months additional lighting is provided in the Car Park area whilst arriving then collecting your child. Information about Car Parking, Arriving and Collecting can be found on the Information for Parents Page.

The Campsite is owned by Melton Mowbray District Scout Council. Please view the Campsite Website Holwell Pastures Scout Campsite
