Who we are

We are 6th Hove Scout Group, part of the Scout Association, and we are based in Brighton & Hove, East Sussex.

6th Hove Scout Group was originally formed in 1914 as part of the Hove & Portslade scouting district. It was originally based at Windlesham House School and moved to the present Scout Hut location in Hurst Crescent 41 years after the Group’s formation. For some time, the group had an affiliation with the Church of the Good Shepherd (Mile Oak) which was home to one half of the group’s sections. More recently, all sections have migrated to our headquarters and we have since opened a new beaver colony and cub pack in the Poets Corner area of Hove.

In 2014, we at the 6th Hove Scout Group celebrated our centenary year with a big group camp on Brownsea Island (the birthplace of Scouting!). We also held a reunion for alumni members of the scout group.

Over the last few years, the group has grown to around one hundred and fifty young people, spread over the Beaver, Cub, and Scout sections, and continues to prosper.

The charity details of our group can be seen on the Charity Commission website.
