Welcome to 28th Portsmouth's Website

Welcome to the online home of 28th Portsmouth Scout Group. The 28th are one of the oldest Scout Groups in Portsmouth, formed in June 1915 at St. Cuthbert’s Church in Copnor, the Scout Troop quickly grew to 20 in number and was formally registered as The 28th in February 1916. A wolfcub pack was associated with the Troop in July 1916. The Group moved out of St. Cuthbert’s in 2006, following the demolition of the church hall for housing and into Stacey Community Centre where we were to stay until 2011. We now meet in the Copnor area of the city.

What's Scouting all about then?

Scouting offers fun and friendship, challenge and everyday adventure to 400,000 girls and boys across the UK. We have a positive impact on young people, our 100,000 adult volunteers and the communities in which we live.

Offering over 200 different activities from abseiling and archery to drama, street sports and water zorbing, Scouting helps 6-25 year  olds grow in confidence, achieve their full potential and become active members of their communities.

This is only possible through the efforts of 100,000 volunteers who also enjoy the fun and friendship of Scouting. Trusted by nearly a million parents each week, the Movement welcomes members from all backgrounds, faiths and cultures. Special emphasis is placed on bringing the Scouting programme to young people who currently do not benefit, particularly those in inner cities, those in rural areas and other disadvantaged groups. The Scout Association   is a registered charity in the UK and part of a worldwide movement  of 31 million Scouts working for peace and global friendship.
