8th Ashford (middlesex) Scout Group
Who we are
8th Ashford is a large thriving Scout Group in the Spelthorne District of Surrey.
We have more than 150 members (with more on the waiting list) and we are the most vibrant, active and well run group in the area. We have an amazingly dedicated team of leaders, all of whom are volunteers and who give countless hours of their time to support the development of the young people.
We run all five evenings during the week, and also offer many opportunities for weekend activities that the children may otherwise be unable to if it were not for the scout group.
Our main objective right now is to raise enough money to build a new Headquarters and ensure the survival of the group because our current lease has expired and will not be renewed. We have been granted planning permission to build on a piece of land between the prison, the railway line and Ashford sports club. It is a great opportunity as the plot is larger than our current one but we will need to raise around £400,000 to make it happen.
If you can help in any way, we look forward to hearing from you.
