‘Last week we were out in the Brecon Beacons. This week we’re up in the Lakes helping some Scouts take their first trip on the water. Where else can you make a difference and have an excellent time yourself? Scouting – it’s recommended.’

Scout Network is the fifth and final section of the Scouting movement. From the time of Baden-Powell, there have been arrangements for young people who wanted to continue after their time in the Scout Section, and in 1967, Venture Scouts were formed from the existing Senior Scout and Rover Scout Sections.

During the late 1990s we decided that, to meet the changing needs of young people, there should be two sections for the over-14s: Explorer Scouts for 14 to 18-year-olds, and the Scout Network for 18 to 25s.

The TNT Scout Network Unit has been set up within the Petersfield District with the prime objective of providing a programme with the aim of helping achieve the Diamond and Queen Scouts Awards.

The Unit meets on a rotational basis at the Scouts HQ for Liphook, Petersfield and Sheet.
