Goodbye Eastleigh, Hello Arrow

31 January 2023

As from tomorrow Eastleigh Scout District will cease to be, following a merger with the Chandlers Ford District. The new, much larger District, will be known as Arrow District.

At the level of our Group, this will make no difference to how our members experience Scouting, other than maybe needing to change their Eastleigh Badge (when the new ones become available).

At a district level, this will mean much larger events, with more chances for our members to make new friends, and be part of a much bigger Scouting experience.

We, at Bishopstoke Sea Scouts, would like to take this opportunity to thank all of those from the Eastleigh DIstrict Leadership Team, and Executive Committee, for their tireless work to make District Scouting something to remember for all of our members, and their constant support of all of our Leaders.

We look forward to seeing what the future holds for Arrow District, and hope it will bring more enjoyment to Scouting than ever before.
