1st Hednesford Scout Group

Welcome to the website of 1st Hednesford Scout Group.


1st Hednesford scout group has been around since 1908 and is one of a few scout groups that have their own HQ. We are a Group within the Cannock Chase District that provide Outdoor Adventure and Skills to young people within Hednesford and beyond.

We offer many opportunities for young people to get involved in activities including our annual events which run within each section. For more information regarding these topics then please speak to a member of the Leadership Team for the section of interest.

As Scouting is the biggest co-educational youth movement there are almost 480,000 people throughout the UK who are involved in scouting activities. The organisation offers young people from the age of 6 to 25 and adult volunteers the experience of a lifetime.

Each section runs a varied and exciting programme which we plan and fill termly. There is also a wide range of Badges and Awards that you can achieve along the way in your scouting life as a Youth Member or as an Adult Volunteer.

Hope to see you joining the Adventure soon!

Yours in Scouting

So Saturday we took on a new challenge, running Checkpoint 8 at Coppice Hill on this years Chasewalk Event. It got our leaders out of walking in the 40 mile event, what a year to choose to do this. Conditions were demanding throughout the day, high winds, snow, hail and sunshine but as normal the incredible bunch of adults we have at our disposal did us proud. As did our scouts in their teams in the scout event. The organisers were pleased with our performance so it seems 1st Hednesford are CP8 for the foreseeable future.
Well done to all involved and thank you to all the parents who allowed their scouts to take part, your trust in us means so much.
There was even a rare sighting of the grey wolf happily working behind his trusty burners and oven.
