Welcome to 8th Basingstoke Scout Group...

The 8th Basingstoke Scout Group was started in 1928, and has run actively ever since except for a break of four years during the Second World War (1942-1946).

Our headquarters are at the London Street United Reformed Church right in the centre of Basingstoke. We are lucky enough to enjoy alot of support from the church, although we are open to young people of all faiths.
