Welcome to the Hatters!

The Hatters Explorer Scout Unit is one of 3 Explorer Units in Southgate. We meet every Monday night.

Explorer Units are the fourth Section of the Scouting family after Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. Explorer Scouts are young people aged between 14 and 18 years old. There is flexibility in the age range; young people can join from age 13½ but cannot move to Scout Network until 18. With the support, direction and guidance of Unit leaders, Explorer Scouts are encouraged to lead themselves, design their own programme and work towards the top awards that Scouting offers.

We usually meet at The Bourne Methodist Church, The Bourne, (only a two minute walk from Southgate Circus – opposite The Priory). Southgate Methodist Church, The Bourne, London N14 6RS. We will occasionally meet at 6th Southgate HQ, The Walker Ground, Waterfall Road, N14 7JZ… or the 14thSouthgate’s Headquarters on Green Road, N14 4AP…. or Ashmole Academy, Trent Park, Scout… You really have to keep an eye on the programme!

… and don’t forget, you don’t have to be mad, but it helps!
