8th Alton Group


The Group is supported by the Rotherfield District Commissioner and his 3 Deputy District Commissioners for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Rotherfield district covers an area from Bentley near  Alton all the way to Alresford and Cheriton and includes the Bordon area too.

Rotherfield District provide activities for our young members to meet up with fellow Scouts from all over the area and participate in larger social events. The older sections, Scouts and Explores, have opportunities to travel abroad to experience the thrills of international scouting through jamborees, expeditions and charitable work experience.

The Group participates in a number of District events ranging from six-a-side football  for Cubs, cooking competitions for Scouts and skittles competitions for Beavers to adult training for leaders.

The Group also participates in important town events such as the St. George's Day parade, Remembrance Sunday and the town carnival.

The Cabin is used by a number of other community groups throughout the year including the Model Railway Club, and a daily playgroup. The Cabin is available for hire for childrens parties, fitness clubs, jumble sales, craft sales, quiz nights, fundraising events and more.
