welcome

3rd Whitton Scout Group was founded 80 years ago by parishioners of St Edmund of Canterbury RC Church in Whitton. We are located in the north-west corner of the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.  


We also host Edmund Hillary Explorer Scout Unit, enabling 3rd Whitton Scouts to move up to a linked Explorer Unit. Our premises are also used by 3rd Heathfield Scout Group.

Robert Baden-Powell undertook his first experimental camp at Brownsea Island over the period 31 July to 9 August 1907. During that year, and into 1908, Baden-Powell was formulating the text Scouting for Boys which was published as a serial in 6 fortnightly parts (4d each) from 15 January 1908. The text was printed as a single edition later that year.  When Robert Baden-Powell took the group of 20 boys to camp to try out the “Scouting Method”, he probably couldn’t imagine that 100 years later the World Organisation for the Scout Movement (WOSM) would count 28 million members in 155 countries.
