DistrictBadge3 North East Wilts is a rural Scout District comprising nine Scout Groups offering scouting to girls and boys between the age of 6 and 14 years old.  We also have a District Explorer Unit based in Marlborough which feeds all groups and caters for scouts between 14 and 18 years old.  The Groups provide a wide range of scouting activities and have the benefit of pulling expertise of other leaders from within the District, specialised advisers from Wiltshire Scout County and the experts at  the our HQ at Gilwell Park in London.The District has a team of both uniformed and non-uniformed volunteers who support the Groups and plan for the future development of the District.
