Group History

1st Malden was formed in 1908 and registered at Imperial Headquarters on April 8th 1909, making us one of the oldest groups in the world that is still open today!

The group is based at the Scout Headquarters in Tadworth Avenue, New Malden. 1st Malden has a Beaver Colony, a Cub Pack and a Scout Troop and is open to all who wish to join and accept the aims of the Scout Association. 

Each section is run by a dedicated team of adult volunteer leaders and helpers, along with a number of Young leaders. All the leaders must hold a current DBS certificate. They are also required to attend regular Safeguarding, 1st Aid and risk assessment courses.

There is also a Group Executive committee that is made up of parents and section leaders who look after the day to day running of the HQ and fundraising.   

The Aim of the Scout Association

The Aim of the Scout Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities. The method of achieving the aim of the association is by providing and enjoyable and attractive scheme of progressive training, based on the Scout Promise and Law and guided by adult leadership
