We’re The Scouts, and everyone is welcome here! We’re all about Skills for Life, providing a programme of activities for children and young people which help shape their future and create lasting memories. Here at 21st Romford, we provide weekly, term-time activities for young people aged 6-14, and our members also get involved in competitions, skills days and nights away throughout the year.

About our Group:
21st Romford Scout Group is a thriving, town-centre group in the heart of the London Borough of Havering. Formed in 2003 by the merger of 8th and 13th Romford Scout Groups, we have a combined history of over 100 years serving the young people in our town. We’re a registered charity, entirely run by volunteers who love the movement and seeing our young people have the time of their lives. We run three sections; Beavers (ages 6-8), Cubs (ages 8-10.5) and Scouts (ages 10.5-14), and meet on a Wednesday evening (term-time), a stone’s throw from Historic Romford Market. Our scarf colours are maroon and scout green, with a gold border. Thinking of joining us? Head to our ‘Joining’ page to find out more.
8th Romford was formed in 1923 at the parish Church of St John the Divine, while 13th Romford was formed in 1930 at Trinity Methodist Church. Both groups, therefore, have a history of serving Romford and the Mawneys estate, where many of our members are still from today!
