Welcome to 23rd Stretford (St Matthew’s & Victoria) Scout Group. We are a Scout Group based in Victoria Park in Stretford, Manchester with Scout, Cub and Beaver sections.

The Group runs a very full and active programme for all sections based around traditional Scouting activities. For example, hiking, camping, fire-lighting, cooking, kayaking, climbing and pioneering.

We have weekly meetings at Victoria Road Scout Hut and take part in external activities and events such as festivals and camps. Similarly, we take part in many other inclusive extra-curricular activities. Our activities are designed to engage the mind and improve social skills. Above all, we aim to uphold the Scouting values.

We have the following sections:
