Scouts and Guides
Scouts and Guides are a long-established and popular group within the village. Our Scout group was established in 1911 by Captain Bobbyer, followed shortly after by Guiding and has continued ever since.
The objectives of the Scout and Guides group are to provide adventurous and challenging activities for young people in the village and to help them develop their skills and abilities in a rounded way.
Over the years the group has been very successful and participated in various camps, cooked 3-course meals, taken part in numerous activities including canoeing, soap box derby and map reading, competed against other sections in night hikes and Ready Steady Cook, and many other adventurous things.
The Scouts and Guides have their headquarters in Mill Lane where it is home to the following sections:
