Hessle Scout Group
Hessle Scout Group was formed in 1912 and over the years has had many different Scout Troops, Cub Packs and a Venture Unit on different sites around Hessle.
Today Hessle Scout Group is about 100 uniformed members strong with a Beaver Colony, 2 Cub Packs, a Scout Troop and an Explorer Unit. We enjoy an affiliation with the local church as well as support from local town folk and business.
The Hessle Scout Group Headquarters is at the rear of the All Saints Church Hall. The building was originally the coach house of the former house on the site of the church hall but has been converted over the years and extended to form the modern headquarters you see today.
Please browse the site and take a look at the sections and if you are interested in joining or supporting us please use the contact box on the sidebar.
