What We Do

About our Group

In the late summer of 1993 a meeting of parents agreed to form a new Scout Group under the Baden-Powell

Scouts Association to provide traditional Scouting for their children. Subsequent meetings agreed the name

of the group as “Blackwater Valley Scout Group” and the ‘three counties’ badge design was devised

representing the three counties of Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire and including the ‘Coot’ emblem of the

Blackwater valley with kind permission from the local council environmental initiative team.


We have camped where Baden-Powell convened the very first experimental camp in 1907 and belong to a wholly volunteer

association that includes some of the oldest Scout Groups in the world. 1st Mortimer B-P Scout Group started in 1910!


We meet at the Scout Hut at the far end of Carrington Lane Recreation Ground in Ash (behind Holly Lodge School)

and cater for boys and girls aged between 5 years and 18 years.
