About Scouts

Welcome to the 4th Radlett Scout Troop

Welcome to the 4th Radlett Scout Troop. We are pleased that you want to be a part of a fun, worldwide organisation of over 28 million members which started in 1907.
 
Scouts is not just something you do once a week; it's something you are. Scouts are people who want to live a certain way and display values like caring for others, looking after the planet and having a positive outlook on life.

Scout Leaders

Tony is the Scout Leader (SL), and Bev, David and Andrew are the Assistant Scout Scout Leaders (ASLs). We are your leaders and are here to help you get the most out of Scouting.

Scout Meeting Times

Scouts usually meet during term time on a Wednesday evening from 7:15pm to 8:45pm in the hall at the back of Radlett Reform Synagogue. There will be occasions when we will meet at other places and times; you will be informed of these in advance. Generally, if a Jewish festival falls on a Wednesday we will not be meeting.

Please check this website, our Facebook Group "4th Radlett Scout Troop" and your e-mails for up to date information.
