Welcome to Our Adventure

Blandford Scout Group was founded in 1910 and has grown over the years to it's current strength.


Blandford Scout Group currently has three sections of Scouting: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts & Scouts


Explorer Scouts (aged 14-18 years old) meet at our HQ but are run from a District level.


Many young people and adults from Blandford and the surrounding area enjoy their Scouting adventure with us! We are inclusive to all genders and religions.

History of Blandford Scout Group

Members of Blandford Scout Group can be identified by their distinctive black and gold edged neckerchiefs.


Our Group badge depicts the Pump House, built by the Bastard Brothers in 1760, after the fire of 1731, so that water would be available to the town. The building within is our Scout HQ. The orange at the top is the glow of the 1731 fire, the green below is the water meadows and the blue wavy line is the river Stour which passes through Blandford town.

Articles from 1910

We have copies of a couple of articles from 1st Blandford Troop in 1910. If you have any lovely stories or history of the Scout Group do get in touch, anything from 1910 to the present day is welcome!
