There are 9 districts that form the Bedfordshire County Scouts.
It is not known exactly when scouting officially started in Bedfordshire, although there is some evidence of a troop in 1908, which later became the 1st Bedford (Onesters). There were troops registered locally in Luton and, shortly afterwards, in Dunstable and Leighton Buzzard.
At that time everyone wore a scarf of scout green, whereas now colours are used, which often have significance to the local area.
The 1st Fairfield Park Scout Group have adopted colours similar to the local school, Fairfield Park Lower School.
