About Us (History)

The Scout Group comprises of two Beaver Colonies, two Cub Packs and two Scout Troop, meeting on different evenings at our Scout Headquarters on London Road, Ware in Hertfordshire, UK. 

Although our original root were in the village of Great Amwell, we have resided on the outskirts of Ware for over 40 years. During that period we have successfully participated in many annual events and competitions with our seven local Scout Groups which form Ware and District Scouts

The Scout group began as Sea Scouts in 1941 run by the Revd Thomas Gill Leech which he led until 1949. 

During 1961 the group moved to a new location on the southern outskirts of Ware and met in a very small old timber hut
