1st Petersfield Scout Group
1st Petersfield Scout Group is one of the oldest groups in the country, starting in 1908. We are situated in the heart of Petersfield, on Heath Road next to the Festival Hall. Find Us on Google Maps.
We currently have a Beaver Colony, a Cub Pack and a Scout Troop that welcomes both boys and girls aged 6 – 14 years old. After 14 the Scouts move onto Explorers which is run between various Scout Groups throughout Petersfield District and then once they are 18, they can move onto Network.
