The Group Scout Leader, Chairman and Executive Committee of the 1st Oxted Scout Group are aware of the closure of the 1st Hurst Green Scout Group. The 1st Oxted has been asked to provide continued Scouting provision for the uniformed children from Hurst Green, and has agreed to do so as a community effort of solidarity and friendship. A great deal of work and effort has gone into, and will continue to go into, providing these extra meetings. The 1st Oxted seeks only to facilitate continued Scouting provision for young people in Hurst Green.
Our understanding is that the reason for the closure of the 1st Hurst Green Scout Group is to do with issues of non-compliance with the Policy, Organisation and Rules of the Scout Association.
