Welcome to Knutsford District Scouts
In Knutsford we have a thriving community of Scout Groups who work tirelessly to provide adventure, friendship and fun for the young people. Also challenging them and helping to achieve their full potential.
New District Commissioner
A long time ago in a town just up the road, I stood in front of a new group of scouts in a new district to try and get them to listen to some strange, noisy Scotsman. It was pretty scary. Watching scouts wobble along a knife-edge mountain ridge was more than a wee bit scary. Being asked to take on the District Commissioner role might just be scarier! Martin Relton did a great job helping Knutsford to be brilliant and following him will be tough.
Today is Day 1 in this new role and I am genuinely excited to get stuck in. I am a big believer that Scouting can fundamentally change people’s lives. While everywhere else gets stricter, scouting gives people adventure and camping and the little bit of silliness that we all need.

Knutsford Queen Scouts – Celebrate their awards at Windsor Castle on the 23rd April 2017
This event dates back nearly 80 years and recognises the outstanding achievements of both adults and young people through a parade and service held annually within Windsor Castle by gift of Her Majesty the Queen.
Each year this celebration brings together various groups and their invited guests to share in this prestigious and special event. We have the pleasure of recognising Queen’s Scouts, who have worked hard to achieve the highest youth award within Scouting. It also celebrates adult award holders, who have been recognised for their outstanding contribution to Scouting as a volunteer.
This Years attendees at Windsor Castle had their awards presented to them by the Duke of Kent & Chief Scout Bear Grylls. The following from left to right are Viv Pike for the Silver Acorn award and the rest where awarded the Queen Scout award are Grace Haselden, Joshua Lynes, Eleanor Woods & Catherine Eadie.
