This year 10th Romsey (Woodley & Crampmoor) Scout Group celebrates 50 years of continuous Scouting.

10th Romsey Scout Group was re-formed in 1959 having originally been founded as ‘Woodley & Highwood’ in 1926. ‘Woodley & Highwood’ closed during the Second World War and re-opened as ‘Woodley & Braishfield’ in the early 1950’s but unfortunately closed again in 1954.

Since re-opening in 1959 with a single Cub Pack of a dozen members, 10th Romsey has gone from strength to strength. This highly successful group now runs; 2 Beaver Colonies, 2 Cub Packs & 2 Scout Troops and also hosts one of the Romsey District Explorer Scout Units. The group currently has a membership of 180 and is the second largest Scout group in Hampshire.

There will be a series of events throughout 2009 to commemorate this anniversary; All sections; Beavers, Cubs & Scouts, will be participating in a Group Camp in May, Current members of the group will be hosting a Reunion Reception for past and present members of the Scout group in the spring of 2009. The group is also looking to collate any photographs and memorabilia from the past years of scouting at 10th Romsey as part of the anniversary celebrations.

If you have been a member of the 10th and would like to come along to the Reunion Reception, or if you have anything memories, photographs or memorabilia which you would be happy for the group to make use of, please leave a comment on our website or send an email to chairman@10thromseyscouts.org.uk and we’ll get back to you.
