About Us

3rd Ashton Scout Group is based in Ashton on Mersey Village in the North West of England. With Brownies, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts meeting throughout the week and many camps and activities, we are a very busy group and whilst we gladly welcome new members and helpers, we usually have a waiting list for all sections.

Our Newsletter

We would like all friends and parents of 3rd Ashton to sign up to our newsetter which is a great way to keep your diaries up to date and see what the groups has been up to. CLICK HERE to sign yourself up - it’s easy and safe (no spam guarantee!)

Payment Details

We like all subs to be paid monthly by standing order. The following paperwork is also available at the hut - please ask a leader.

Join Our Facebook Group

If you didn’t already know, we have a private Facebook group which is primarily to help parents keep informed and to let you see photos of activities and camps. No need to worry if you’re not on Facebook. ALL important info will be sent via email or printed.

A Brief History

3rd Ashton was founded in 1927. Back then the hut was on the site of Harpers Chemist in Ashton Village. The ‘new’ hut we use now was built in 1960.

We’d like to put more information about 3rd Ashton’s past on our site so if you used to be involved with 3rd Ashton and you have any interesting stories, facts or photos we’d love to hear from you!    Contact us

Drop off

Pick up

BEAVERS / CUBS / BROWNIES: Parents must ensured their child arrives at the hut and signs in before passing responsibility to the leaders. At the end of each meeting children are to wait in the hut until they are collected, please do not ask your child to meet you on the road. We understand parking can be difficult but child safety is clearly more important.

SCOUTS / EXPLORERS / YOUNG LEADERS: We recognise that some of the older children may not be escorted to and from the meetings however we cannot be held responsible for your child prior to entering and signing in with the leader or once they have left the premises at the close of the meetings.

PARKING: Please be considerate to our neighbours when dropping off and picking up ~ Thank You.

3A Plant Sale Letter 2020 V2.pdf 3A Plant Order Form 2020 Editable.xlsx

The plant sale will go ahead!
This year we are accepting ONLINE ORDERS ONLY.  You can download the form and letter above. Please do NOT make any payment at this point in time but do make sure you get any orders to us by 25th April by e-mailing them to Andrea using the address on the order form. Also note that we will be providing DELIVERY ONLY, so you should remember to add £2 delivery charge to your order. Deliveries are planned to be from the 16th May onwards and will be dropped outside your front door, back gate etc. 

Obviously we must follow the Government guidelines at the time, so we will only ask for BACS payment once we are confident that we can complete the deliveries and ensure everyone’s safety.
The group have discussed the continuation of the 2020 Plant Sale in depth and felt that it will give much needed support for the nursery and hopefully provide welcome distraction to our 3rd Ashton friends and family in these testing times. 
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us
