3rd Whitton Scout Group, located in the north-western corner of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, comprises two distinctive traditions -St Edmunds, founded by parishioners of St Edmund of Canterbury RC Church in Whitton and Ibn Battuta which was established more recently (originally as 6th Whitton) to serve the particular needs of Islamic and Muslim traditions. We think that this blend gives us a unique identity in Scouting.
We host Edmund Hillary Explorer Scout Unit, enabling 3rd Whitton Scouts to move up to a linked Explorer Unit

Why the red? Well, it was Red Nose Day for Comic Relief.
