Our building

1st Horndean Scout Hut located on Queens Cresent, Horndean was built in 1968 by the volunteers, parents and leaders with the local community support. In 1996, we built a single-storey extension to the side of the HQ to allow us to store further camping equipment.

The HQ is maintained by the volunteers and parents of the scout group throughout the year. The hut is cleaned each week by an external cleaning company.

The HQ is rented out by different users each week on top of the youth sections running in the afternoons/evenings.

April 2020: We have applied for planning permission to develop our HQ site even further – read more here…
