to the official website of Ealing and Hanwell District Scouts

Hi, my name is John Foxwell and I’m the District Commissioner for Ealing and Hanwell.

If you’re reading this you must have some interest in Scouting.  This website will, hopefully, give you the information that you are looking for.  If it doesn’t then please feel free to contact me directly and I’ll do my best to help you.

There are 10 groups in the District, pretty much evenly spaced around Ealing and Hanwell.  To find out more about our Groups click here.

Scout Groups generally have 3 sections, Beavers (6-8 years), Cubs (8-10 1/2 years) and Scouts (10 1/2 – 14 years).  To find out more about the sections click on the tabs above.  The older youth sections 14+, Explorers and Young Leaders are not attached to groups but are run directly by the District and consolidated into two Units and information on these sections can again be found above.

We are lucky enough to have a District campsite at Stoke Poges in Buckinghamshire.  For more information click here.

If your son or daughter wants to join and you can’t find find enough information on this website then please contact me.  However you will be looking to join a successful youth organisation and some sections in some groups are already full and operate a waiting list.  Other groups have spaces but it may mean travelling a short distance.

If you are over 18 and would like to help then I want to hear from you – NOW!  It is only by recruiting more adult help that we can extend the Scouting opportunity to more young people in Ealing and Hanwell.  Scouting is fun for adults as well as the young people.  The opportunities to do things you might not otherwise do are endless.
