The Wivenhoe Scout & Guide Association (reg charity no. 1034400) was founded in 1968 to provide support to Scouting and Guiding in Wivenhoe. 

It does this by managing the Scout & Guide Hall, raising funds to keep it in good repair, maintaining and increasing a stock of camping equipment, and general support for the Leaders of all the Units.

There are around 150 youngsters in the 10 Units that come under the umbrella of the Wivenhoe Scout & Guide Association.

For more information, contact the Chairman, Karl Douzier 01206 823164

For details of Unit meetings, see below.

Scouting started in 1907, with an experimental camp on Brownsea Island in the UK for 20 boys from a wide variety of social backgrounds.

Today, Scouting is a million times bigger than when it first started. It involves girls and boys, men and women from every race, religion and culture, and nearly every country in the world.

In 2007, Scouting celebrates its worldwide Centenary. This is an opportunity to promote the values, benefits and achievements of Scouting to the world, and also for the millions of Scouts around the world to make a real difference to the lives of others through their Centenary activities.

The single theme for all events and activities for the Centenary of Scouting and the 21st World Scout Jamboree is: 2007: One World One PromiseClick here for more info on Scouting's centenary celebrations.

And in 2010, Guiding will be celebrating their 100th birthday too!
