About The Society

The video (Featuring Frankie Wardzinski and Laura Simpson) has been taken from the Student’s Union Scout and Guide – UoNSU Virtual Welcome Fair.

To Summarise the video, Nottingham SSAGO (SNoGS) has three main aims:

Socials – where like minded people get the opportunity to meet on a weekly basis to take part in activities, chat, relax, and have a good time. We meet every Wednesday evening during term time, not to mention lots of extra socials and events, both locally and nationally with other SSAGO groups.

Volunteering – to encourage members to become Leaders with local Scout and Guide groups. We have links with many local groups, and can help find the right group for you, whether you’re wanting a new group now that you’ve moved to Uni, or if your entirely new to being a Leader. But don’t worry, it’s not compulsory!

Adventure – surely one of the best bits about Scouting and Guiding, getting outdoors, going camping, and doing some exploring! There are three National SSAGO Rallies each year, one per term, and as well as that SNoGS runs or attends another event each term. These include Freshers’ Camp, national Network Camps, and our annual summer camp.

If you’re a University of Nottingham or Nottingham Trent student you can join Notts SSAGO. However, in the video it says that we meet every week in C27- this used to be the case, but this isn’t confirmed for next year yet! Although, we still will be meeting at Mooch every Wednesday at 9:30pm and we have try-it events throughout the year where you can pop along and see if this society is right for you.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
