The Hatters are a Explorer group based in Southgate. The group was formed in summer 2007, with leader Stephen Ward and 7 Explorers. The Explorers range in age from 14 to 18 and are a close-knit group.

Now, in 2013 the group has over 50 members, with the young teenagers constantly having fun, adventures and challenging themselves, with long expeditions in the pouring rain as well as Jamborees where they meet scouts from all over the world. The group have travelled to many places including Ireland, Denmark, Wales and Namibia.
