I bet you didn't know that it was 100 years since RSS B-P set off to a small island in Poole Harbour, Dorset? He took a couple of other adults and a couple of dozen kids. The rest, as they say, is history - a million-fold incease in 100 years!

Since this Group was closed I keep this site going as a tribute to the Group, its former members, and because of the vast amount of resources I built up over the years. To lose all this would be a travesty. I do all this at my own expense.

Should you find the site helpful and want to donate, please do so.
We're here to help - Scoutese in Plain English:
A Scout Group consists of a Beaver Colony + a Cub Pack + a Scout Troop [+ an Explorer Unit]

A Scout County consists of approximately 10 Scout Districts + Scout Networks;
The National Scout Association consists of all the Scout Counties.
