Basingstoke East Scout District is one of two districts covering the Basingstoke area, the other being Basingstoke West District.
Our district, Basingstoke East Scout District, comprises of, Basingstoke town centre, Black Dam, Chineham, Eastrop, Lychpit, Oakridge, Old Basing, Popley, South View and the villages to the south east of Basingstoke.
The district currently has eleven groups, most having a Beaver (6 - 8 yrs), Cub (8 - 10 1/2 yrs), and Scout (10 1/2 - 14 yrs) section. There are also two Explorer Scout groups (14 - 18 yrs) and a Scout Network (18 - 25 yrs) group in the district.
Please note that the Groups within the District don't have 'Catchment areas', so there is no reason to join the nearest group.
