Hall Hire

Please note that apart from occasional, authorised Scouting activities, the premises have to be fully vacated by 10.30pm on Sundays to Thursdays and 11.00pm on Fridays and Saturdays. Therefore the venue may be less suitable for parties for adults or late teens.

There are secure, enclosed grounds with the Hall which can be used for Cub, Scout or Explorer Camps. Located in Southern Hampshire within 20 minutes from the New Forest National Park and Southampton. A little longer to Bournemouth & Poole, but an ideal location for a weekend camp experience – we even allow camp fires. We are also within walking distance of the Test Way way which is ideal for hikes.
