7th Southampton (Bassett)
Group History

We have been providing the Scouting Adventure for young people since 1914. In that time, thousands of Young People and adults have walked in to the group and had so much fun. It hasn't always been easy, there have been ups, downs and heartbreak. Unfortunately due to theft of records, we are still piecing together our history.
