2nd Reigate Scout Group is one of the oldest in the country. It was founded in 1908, shortly after the successful publication of Baden-Powell’s famous “Scouting For Boys”. In those early days the Group started under the “last lamp-post on Common Road” in Earlswood, and went on to meet in various halls, as well as Redhill Common. A feature that continues to this day!
Our official Scouting name is Earlswood 2nd Reigate St John’s Scout Group. In 1936 the 32nd Reigate Rovers, who were affiliated with St John’s church, were formerly incorporated into the 2nd Reigate Scout Group - hence the St John’s part of the name.
Any person between the age of 6 to 18 years can join our Group. We welcome girl and boys, all religions and those with special needs. The four sections of Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers meet on a weekly basis and at weekends for extra activities. We currently have over 100 members.
Last year, 2nd Reigate Scouts were awarded the District Shield for being the best group due to our continual growth in members, commitment to Scouting and supporting the local community.
The Group also provides opportunities for adults to get involved with their community by becoming a Helper, Assistant, Leader of part of the Group Executive. Want to help? Please contact us.
