2nd Denton & South Heighton
"Ralph Reader's Own"

The Scout Group


The 2nd Denton and South Heighton Scout Group is in the Seahaven Scout District of East Sussex. We have the privilege of being the only Scout Group in the country to wear an additional name tape: "Ralph Readers Own" . Ralph Reader was a showbiz impresario, famously associated for decades with the Gang Shows. He lived in the village for a number of years and started our Scout Group in the 1960's.

The Group consists of the Beaver Colony (ages 6-8), the Cub Pack (ages 8-11) and the Scout Troop (ages 11-14) - for details please use the tabs alongside. The normal meeting place for all sections is St Leonards Church Hall, Heighton Road, Denton but we try to be outdoors as much as possible according to the seasons. For meeting times please click the Section's tab alongside.

All Sections meet during school term times. If you have a password, enter it below to see the calendar and show information about changes, special events and so on. Subscriptions are £2.50 per week, and as it covers hall rent, insurance, Friday meeting activities and most badges, needs to be paid whether your son or daughter attends the meeting or not. Subs can be paid termly or half termly, by cash or cheque. Just tell us how you wish to pay. Cubs' and Scouts' subs can also be paid by BACS.

The whole Group is under the leadership of a Group Scout Leader and is helped in all sorts of ways by a Group Committee. None of the Leaders or Committee is paid. We are all volunteers (and DBS-checked). The Committee - and indeed all sections of the Group - organise and help with fundraising for equipment and so on.

For details of Uniforms please go to the "Stores" tab and look for Scout Shops and the appropriate section of the Group.
