The 12th Andover (West) Scout Group

'The best'

Welcome to the 12th Andover (West) Scout Group website

Scroll down or click ‘News & Events’ above for all our latest news ….

We are based in the Andover District in North Hampshire. Our Group meet at the Scout Hut on West Portway in Andover (see contact for more details).

Our group consists of Beaver, Cub & Scout sections and in addition, one of the District Explorer units also meets at our hut as well as a Networks section.

We have a great hut with lots of facilities, a large car park and a wonderfully large outside space that is fully and safely enclosed, allowing us to hold camps and many events within our own grounds.

The aim of the Scout Association is to promote the development of young people and help them achieve their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials as individual, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.

This website is continuously being added to so please browse it regularly to find new information on the 12th Andover (West) Scout Group.
