WHO WE ARE
After World War Two Clement Attlee's post-war Labour government built more than a million homes. The house building boom continued when the Conservatives returned to power in 1951. As part of this programme Worthing was extended West and a new community was built near Field Place.
The nearest Scout Group, 1st Goring, could not cope with the increase in demand and so opened a satalite Group (1st Goring, Maybridge) who met at St. Richard's Church Hall.
In June 1965, the Group changed it's name and 2nd Goring Scout Group was born. The Group raised funds, with the support from the local community, and rented a piece of land in Wavertree Road, and built a Head Quarters. This was the home of the Group for over 30 years.

WHAT WE OFFER
We provide fun, challenge and adventure to children in the Field Place area of Worthing. Without our everyday adventure, the world would certainly be a less interesting place.
As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.
We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, The Scout Association helps over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future.
We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians. The Scout Association helps young people develop and improve key life skills.
We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always. We’re part of a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures.
Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences based around subject areas we call Programme Zones. The Zones vary slightly depending on which of our sections the young person is in, but they cover a huge range of activities, from outdoor and physical pursuits to community involvement, creative expression and learning about the wider world.
Together we help our youth members get the most out of their Scouting experience by including elements from as many zones as possible within the activities on offer. The older they get, the more input young people themselves have in their own programme so they can choose to go hiking in the dark or travel across Poland with just a backpack and three friends.
Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.
