Group Neckerchief / Identity 

All Scout Groups are identifiable by the Colour of their Group Neckerchief. 

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.

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.

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

Extra Funding

1. You can complete a Gift Aid form if you are a tax payer which would be given to you by your child’s Section. We can claim back 25% of what you have paid in Term Fees per child over the financial year.

2. We also have our big fundraiser that is the Scout Christmas Post Community Event. We do ask as many families within our Scout Group and others to help and support this great Fundraising Community Event.

By supporting both this will bring in important additional Income.

Melton Active Champions 2021 + 2022

Our Scout Group was Nominated as a Melton Active Champions 2021 and also 2022 for all the work we put into continuing Scouting especially during the Pandemic when we was unable to meet Face to Face from March 2020 to April 2021 and enabling the Sections to get back to Face to Face Meetings from April 2021.

During the Pandemic when we could not meet Face to Face, all Sections Set online Challenges for all their Members. The Cubs and Scout also met Weekly via “Zoom Virtual Meetings” and the Cubs briefly got back to Face to Face Meeting during September + October 2020

“Well Done” to all the Adults to who ensured Scouting never stopped.

We was also nominated in 2022 for how we bounce back to Face to Face Meetings having to cope with at first some restrictions and keeping membership at the same level every since March 2020
