District Hub

Basingstoke East’s Hub is our HQ and collaboration & training facility. It has multiple rooms available for use by all our groups and the wider Scout community (including Guides). We are also working hard on a youth workshop space which we hope to open in the very near future to help with Digital Maker sessions.
