|Description||The 172 are based in and around the Alvaston (DE24) area of Derby. We take children from several school in the vicinity. The Scout section meets in Shelton Lock. The 172 is a young group that has developed a reputation for good scouting and for providing a fun experience for all. We are currently working to gain new members and wish to improve the group further in the coming months and years. The Scout Association has the following declared aim: "The Aim of the Scout Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potentials, as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities" We do this by playing games, earning badges and going on trips, camps and other organised activities. Scouts also work towards their progressive training awards that includes lots of activities that are intended to promote their personal development. But above all we do it by having fun!|
