7th Winchester Scout Group

Area Served: St Cross (the electoral Ward of St Michael)
Beavers: 1 Colony
Cubs: 1 Pack
Scouts: From September 2016
Web Site: None

This start-up Beaver Colony and Cub Pack is to seed a new 7th Winchester (St Cross) Scout Group. To begin with these 2 new sections are satellites of the 8th Winchester (Stanmore) Scout Group. The target date for the new Group's formal formation as the 7th Winchester with its own Group Executive and Charity Trustees is summer 2015.

One of the aims of the new Group is to provide 12 new Beaver places each year for 6 year old boys and girls. This is the equivalent of some 15% of the Ward's 80 children for each year cohort. With high retention rates and excellent Programme and Activities the Group will grow to some 120 youth members over time (12 pa x 10 years in Scouting).
