The ‘34th’ was founded in 1930 at St John’s School by the choirmaster of St John’s Church. The Group has served the community of Meadvale since moving, in 1935, to the centre of the village. The current scout hut, built by the group, was opened in 1952.

The aim of the Scout Association is to promote the development of young people in achieving their full physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as individuals, as responsible citizens and as members of their local, national and international communities.
