Meon Valley District Scouts

Supporting Scouting in and around the Meon Valley

Beavers are usually aged between six and eight years old, though they can be as young as five and three quarters.

They usually meet weekly to take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, singing, visits and good turns, along with plenty of outdoor activities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It may be the first time they spend a night away from home so it’s a real adventure for them.


Earlier entry is at the Beaver Scout Leader's discretion (for example, to allow someone a little bit younger to join at the same time as their friends).


A group of Beavers is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

Dear all
The District Executive Committee AGM will be held on Tuesday 24th September 1930 at Lyons Copse Lodge. All are welcome.
We are hoping that some of our Explorers will be giving a presentation on their recent international expeditions so would be great to have a good turnout to support them.
Sarah Evans is stepping down as Treasurer and so we are looking for her replacement. If you know anyone suitable to take on this role, please put them in touch. 
In addition to the AGM, Robin Cook, DC, will be giving a presentation on Project Boundary with respect to the future of the Meon Valley District and the potential merger of Winchester and Meon Valley Districts. 
This will be an opportunity for the district to discuss this important potential change and ask questions. 
Please can you cascade throughout your groups.
Look forward to seeing you on the 24th.
