The 6th Harrow Scout Group is part of the Harrow and Wealdstone Scout District, in the Scout County of Greater London Middlesex West.
The Group is made up of 3 sections, the Beaver Scout Colony, the Cub Scout Pack, and the Scout Troop, providing fun and adventure for young people between the ages of 6 and 14 (and for the adult volunteers, too!). Click the logos to find out more about each section!
The 6th Harrow, originally known as the 1st Wealdstone, opened in 1911, and was also known as the 10th Harrow for a short while. Having changed meeting locations and names for the last time, the Group finally settled as the 6th Harrow in 1955 and meets in a Headquarters built by parents, friends, and leaders of the Group, which was officially opened in 1961.
The Group wears a distinctive red and yellow scarf, the origin of which is said to lie in a joke that backfired. If the legend is true, the red and yellow we are all familiar with is actually supposed to be a combination of scarlet and gold…
Now over 100 years old, the 6th Harrow is as strong as it has ever been, with all 3 sections regularly taking part in fun, creative, adventurous, and often unique, activities.
