Hi we live in Tuckton, Southbourne and are looking for a good scout group for our 10 year old son.
Does anyone have any experience of local groups either positive or negative?
I'd be very grateful for any advice. smile

If they're oversubscribed they're generally good but that doesn't always follow. We're over the river in Christchurch and our waiting list for Beavers/Cubs is full but they can take more in Scouts so chance to get a place then. They can start Scouts at 10.5yrs. No working knowledge of the Bournemouth groups but there is one that meets at Hengistbury Head, behind the church just before the bend on the main drag. I believe there's a Sea Scout group that meet at either Tuckton or Iford as well. Enquire through they should be able to help you. If no joy PM me and I'll put you in touch with Jumpers Scout leader I'm a Cub leader there if you're interested in jumping districts.

Oh and if your child is going up to Bournemouth School they have their own Scout troop.
