27th Woolwich Scout Group

Wesley Hall has been home to the 27th Woolwich Scout Group since its formation.  The group currently comprises a Beaver Colony, Cub Scout Pack and Scout Troop. The Badger Explorer Unit also meets at Wesley Hall.  The group and unit have always been strongly linked with the church, with many group members also members of Wesley Hall. Most months of year include a parade service attended by group members in uniform. The group’s colours are paraded at these services.

Often the group has helped out with maintenance of the building, with much valuable work today still carried out by current group officers and former group members.

Wesley Hall has seen many special events held by the 27th, including dinners, barbecues, group shows, etc.

A badge commemorating Wesley Hall’s centenary has been designed. We hope that it permission will be grated for this to be worn on our uniforms.

Information about the group and its history is available on the Group’s web site at http://the27thwoolwich.org.uk/.

The are perhaps many hundreds of photos taken of the 27th over the years. W e publish just a small selection here, particularly where they feature Wesley Hall. Please if you have any comments, do write in.
