The Hut

We own a  Scout Hut in Heslington which provides space for both indoor and outdoor activities.

P1030262We naturally have to provide in our annual budget for the maintenance and insurance of this building, and of course the bills for electricity and water.

The Scout Hut is available for hire during the times that we are not using it
for Scouting activities. For further information on prices and availablity
please contact the Assistant Group Scout Leader.

The Minibus

We own 16 seater  Minibus. Experience has taught us that without a mini-bus sized vehicle it is not practical to run quality outdoor activities or visits away from Heslington.

The minibus is fully equipped with seatbelts and a “kickin'” sound system. It is also fitted with a towball.

Hiring The Minibus

The minibus can be hired by hired by Scout groups and Guide companies, subject to it not being required by any Heslington Scout Group section or not under hire to another third party. Please email us for further details at agsl [at]  — replacing [at] with @ please and no spaces

The Gear

We have a good stock of tents and other camping and expedition equipment (stoves, lights, camp kitchens, etc.). Our annual budget includes making good wear and tear, and for all sundry string, paint, and craft materials used on meeting nights.
