Meon Valley District Scouts

Supporting Scouting in and around the Meon Valley

Scout Network allows 18 to 25 year-olds who have an interest in both Scouting and their own personal development, and ultimately want to have fun, the opportunity to do so.

So why join Scout Network

When you reach 18 life starts to look a bit different. Often more opportunities and responsibility present themselves. This means that your scouting life needs to be flexible to fit in with how life maybe changing.

The Network is the perfect community for 18-25 year olds to continue Scouting or start their Scouting journey and join 20,000+ other members who are independently or working together on projects and events around adventure, international and community.

Scout Network members take part in a variety of activities, which they undertake and organise themselves with the support of a Scout Network Leader.

Example activities include:

Abseiling, award work, bowling, camping, circus skills, climbing, cooking, games, go-karting, gorge walking, hiking, pioneering, shooting and water sports.

So what are projects and events?

A project should have an impact beyond the immediate team who are working on the project. For a project to be successful the series of tasks need to be planned well, there should be a result/outcome, efficient resources and a timeline.

An event is a single activity that can take place at any given time; an event could be taking part in a climbing session. You may be inspired by this activity and decide to turn it into a project by hosting a weekend climbing session for local schools in your area. You can find out more about project and events here. The flexibility of doing events and projects is you can work on these at a time, place and  pace that suits you!


Young adults aged between 18 and 25 are eligible to register as Scout Network members, subject to a satisfactory criminal records check.

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.
