We are a Royal Navy Recognised Sea Scout Group, number 38. This is an agreement between the Scout Association and the Royal Navy, which can bring some benefits and a great deal of honour to the Group or Unit.
There are only a total of 103 places allocated to the scheme. Recognised Groups and/or Units are permitted to:
Wear the Royal Navy Pennant.
Fly the defaced Red Ensign.
Visit and camp at HMS Bristol in Portsmouth and at certain other military establishments, by prior arrangement.
Participate in the annual big, RN-sponsored events, namely the swimming gala held in February at HMS Raleigh,
The Sea Scout summer camp held during the May Bank Holiday period, the Soccer Sixes competition held in late September
