In 2019 Denmead have 10 scouts selected to visit the World Scout Jamboree in West Virginia. They are busy raising funds to pay for this once in a lifetime trip.

So sort out your clothes and bring some along to swap and bag yourself a new wardrobe for the winter.

Tickets are £5 and includes a lovely glass of bubbly on arrival. For every item of good quality and condition clothing you bring, you will be given a token to “buy” another item.

we also have lots of lovely stalls that you can browse and maybe pick up some Xmas presents.

Tickets are available from Tracy, Angela or Angie (contact details on the poster)


Denmead Scouts are 60 in 2018!

Watch this space for exciting activities we will be doing to celebrate over the year.


Welcome to Denmead Scout Group

Hello and welcome to our website. One of the main features is our Blog where all Leaders can post up-to-the-minute general, section-specific and activity news items including photos. There are two elements to this – Latest News and DSG Blog. They can be accessed by scrolling down this page. 


Running the largest Scout Group in Hampshire (over 150 boys and girls) takes a lot of time and effort. In particular we need more Leaders and Helpers. With the expansion of the Denmead and Waterlooville catchment areas, and our ever-growing reputation, we constantly receive enquiries from new members. Unforunately we cannot accommodate any more without the support of Leaders and Parent Helpers. So please help us make the difference and get involved today. Scroll down to see the section below – ‘We need your help‘ and click the ‘find out more’ box to apply. If you are new to Scouting you will discover how worthwhile and rewarding it can be. If you’re new to the area you will also find a great social life waiting for you! See our latest recruitment flyer here: recruitment flyers

All information about our group, sections and how to contact us can be accessed via the tabs along the top of this page.

Our ‘Events’ menu shows details for special events using our HQ (not regular weekly Scouting meetings).

Also see our website designers and hosts at MQM Interactive – they have donated their services to make this website a reality!

Many thanks.
