2nd Marham (RAF) Scouts Group

2nd Marham (RAF) Scouts Group

The 2nd (RAF Marham) Scouts Group, which consists of the Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, recently received a prestigious award from the Scout organization for consistently increasing the Group's numbers over the past 3 years. All units within the Group have a very healthy membership, however, each section is very happy to recruit 'fresh-blood'. The certificate was presented by the Group Scout Leader (GSL) Andrew "Bob" Monkhouse at the Evening Meet of the Cub pack. At the presentation Andrew said "It is a great honour to receive this very prestigious and highly sought after award. It proves that the 2nd (RAF Marham) Scouts Group has a very pro-active programme which attracts both male and female youth to the Group".

There are both Scouting and Guiding at RAF Marham. If you wish to rejoin a pack, troop or company, or simply want to try for the first time, please come along. We will be particularly keen to hear from any of you who want to help in a supportive way, such as pack leaders, treasurers, or simply interested grown-ups. The building is situated adjacent to the Junior Ranks Single Living Accommodation (JRSLA) barrack blocks inside the Station perimeter.

The Air Scouts are a branch within the scouting organisation that focus on air related activities. Currently there are approximately 150 Air Scout Groups or Units active in the UK, with just under 60 having been recognised by the Royal Air Force under an agreement between The Scout Association and the M.O.D. The Air Scout groups form part of the usual Group and District structure. The age ranges are the same as for the scouts so there are units to suit all ages from 8 to 25. It is also possible to have an Air Scout Patrol within a "normal" group. The units do mainstream scouting awards and activities as well as specialist air badges and activities. To find out more information check out the air scouts page on the Scout Base website.
