Annual General Meeting

Our 2023 AGM was held on Monday 6th June.

Our next AGM is scheduled for Monday 3rd June 2024.


As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We bring communities together and contribute to society. Above all, we aim to build better futures.

That’s why we encourage across Basingstoke East, our young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, over 700 young people enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed in life.

As a Scout District we are a registered Charity and therefore adopt an official constitution and have a board of trustees to oversee our governance.
