A Brief History

Our Group have been on Parkwood for nearly fifty years,based at a number of venues but finally where we are for nearly thirty years , we started meeting at Parkwood School, then moved to Deanwood School and in 1989 finally into our own building where we are today , this was finally built after a lot of heavy and enthusiastic  fundraising and lots of committed man hours and lots of help from  Royal Engineers.

Our numbers rose  to nearly two hundred at one point , giving scouting to young people in two Beaver Colonies , Three Cub Sections , and a Scout Troop of fifty boys and girls with a strong venture unit of 25 young people.

At this time we also has a 48 seater coach lovingly called" Rhubarb and Custard" unfortunately this was set fire to at the storage area where it was parked , but Galleon Travel, through one of the Group contacts came to our aid and supplied us with a 56 seater for a very reasonable price.

Both coaches were used to their full advantage taking young people away to weekend and week camps and Venture expeditions into Wales, but running costs became too expensive and finally the coach was sold to a well know Kent  pop band - whose  name I cannot remember !!

Numbers have fallen over the years but nevertheless  have remained stable and positive  , with an addition of a strong Sea Scout Explorer Unit (Hydra) - who have just gained Royal Navy Recognition, being given number 104 in the Country.

So you can see we are still very active and committed giving varied and interesteing programmes to all sections.

The 22nd Gillingham (Parkwood) Scout group is a friendly and open minded group of people, young and old, new and old to Scouting. Learning together and undertaking new adventures. The group openly welcomes one and all to join us.
