FUNDRAISING
OUR HISTORY
On the 29th July 1907, the birth of a world wide movement took place on Brownsea Island, Poole Harbour in Dorset. It was on this date that a pioneer from the British Army, Major-General Robert Baden-Powell (B.P.) set up an experimental camp for boys. This camp was based on the skillls of Scouting which B.P. had passed on to the local boys during his time in the Boer War. On this camp B.P. chose 20 boys from different backgrounds to participate. There were 12, well educated boys from Eton and Harrow, and eight boys from the local Boys Brigade units, of which one was from Hamworthy. It was following the success of this camp that the now Lieutenant-General Baden-Powell decided to write a series of monthly magazines called Scouting for Boys. These magazines were first published in February 1908 and were eventually made in to a complete book at the time of the official launch of the Scout Movement in the summer of 1908. In that same year, for no apparent reason, the Hamworthy Boys Bridgade seemed to close down and a Hamworthy Scouts Boat Patrol was formed under the direction of the local Rector, Rev. George James Jackson O’Shea. It was this patrol which was to form into what is now known as 1st Hamworthy Scout Group. The Rev. O’Shea allowed the patrol to meet at The Rectory on the Carter estate which at the time was his home and also the centre of Hamworthy village.

Scout Salute & Sign The Scout sign is made by holding your right hand at shoulder height in the position shown on the right. It is used whenever someone makes or renews their Scout Promise. The three outstretched fingers represent the three main parts of the promise and the circle between thumb and little finger represents the world-wide family of Scouting. The Scout salute is made by holding your right hand in the same position, but with your first finger pointing to your right eyebrow (and your elbow out). It is only used when in full uniform as a formal greeting or sign of respect e.g. when hoisting/breaking open the union flag. Scout Handshake As we know Scouts across the world all greet each other with a left-handed handshake and that it is a sign of trust and friendship but why did and how did Baden Powell come to decide to use it when he formed the Scout Movement There is a story that when Baden Powell entered Kumasi, the capital city of the Ashanti he was met by one of the Great Chiefs of the Ashanti, he saluted them and then offered his right hand out as a sign of friendship, but the Chief transferred his shield which he held in his left hand to his right which contained his spear and offered his left hand as a sign of friendship. When asked why Baden Powell was told that by offering his left hand which traditionally was used to hold a shield for protection he was showing his trust to his enemy or friend for with out the shield for protection he was open to attack.

1st Hamworthy Scout Group can trace its origins back to Lord Robert Baden Powell’s experimental camp held on Brownsea Island in 1907. We are proud to be one of the oldest Scout Groups in the world and prouder still to be providing quality scouting experiences to the young men and women of our local community. Our scout hall is used regularly for section meetings for young people from the ages of 6 through to 18. With qualified instructors in our group for Archery, Climbing, Rafting and Air Rifle Shooting we have plenty of activities we frequently run. Additionally, living in such a beautiful area we like to be out and about camping and hiking with all the sections.
