Scouting first started in Tonbridge in 1907, with the formation of the 1st Tonbridge BP Scout Group. The District now has eleven Groups, covering Tonbridge itself, plus surrounding towns and villages including Hadlow, Leigh, Hildenborough, Five Oak Green, Paddock Wood and East Peckham.
The District has Explorer Units in Tonbridge, Paddock Wood (Low Weald) and Hildenborough, and a Scout Network in Tonbridge. There is also a dynamic Scout Active Support Unit.
There are no religious, racial or cultural barriers to membership.
Adult Leaders are trained and CRB checked to ensure the highest standard of safety, whilst ensuring the fundamentals of Scouting including the provision of adventurous activities for young people.
