We are a society of Scouts and Guides based at Plymouth University. PLUGS is part of the University of Plymouth Student's Union (UPSU). By joining PLUGS you can continue your Scouting and Guiding journeys into your university life. PLUGS provides a relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere where all those that wish to be involved with Scouting and Guiding can meet up and socialise.
PLUGS provides its members with a balanced and varied programme that will, hopefully, cater to everybodies interests. We meet once a week on a Thursday night to take part in a variety of different actitivities, these consist of either a drinking social, an active social or quiet(er) social on a monthly cycle. Over the last year these activities have consisted of a quiz night, a trampolining night, a barbecue by the sea and our annual "Drinker's Badge" social. Alongside the weekly activities we attend at least one camping trip per term, these are hosted by other SSAGO clubs all around the country and give a unique opportunity to meet students from other universities all over the country. We can also provide a strong link into local Scouting and Guiding within Plymouth too if you wish to volunteer as a leader.
We currently have 40 active members.
Our current chair is Ashley Fitzhugh.
