1st Brookwood Scouts will be collecting real trees for recycling on the morning of SUNDAY 7th January 2024.

To book your collection please complete this form

In what has become an annual tradition, Brookwood Scouts will once again be collecting real christmas trees from the local area to be recycled in exchange for a donation. Brookwood Scouts is a charity, meaning we rely on donations to continue to offer a varied, exciting and valuable programme for our local children and young people. Therefore, a small donation (suggested amount £4) would be appreciated to cover our Christmas tree collection costs and to help raise additional funds for the group.

Last year we received fantastic support from the local area raising £800 with half the amount raised going to Woking & Sam Beare hospice. This year we’ll again be fundraising for the group & the hospice, with new camping equipment needed as some of our tents are older then our Scouts.!

Our patch covers about a mile radius from Brookwood Station, this takes in all of Brookwood, Pirbright, Sheets Heath & parts of Knaphill. If you’re unsure or for more information, please drop me an email

1st Brookwood Scouts

We are the 1st Brookwood Scouts Cubs and Beavers group. We meet on a Friday evening at Brookwood, in the district of Woking.

It is a vibrant Group of some 90-100 boys and girls aged 6 to 14, supported by uniformed adult and young leaders, across three sections: Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts.

The Group runs a very full and active programme for all sections based around traditional Scouting activities: hiking, camping, fire-lighting, cooking, kayaking, climbing, pioneering.

The young people begin to learn scouting skills at an early age, building on these skills as they participate in camps and activities under the close supervision of the section leaders. In addition, all sections have a developed service programme that encourages the young people to take an active role within the local community.

The Group is supported in its activities by an Executive Committee that helps administer the Group, as well as providing resources through organised fundraising.

Parents and family members are encouraged to participate in the life of the Group, through Family Camps and other social events. The Group does also rely on parents to provide occasional assistance to the uniformed Leaders within each of the sections, and also with Group fundraising efforts. In the case of Beaver and Cub sections, parents might be asked to help out at meetings or on trips. In the case of Scouts, particular help is needed from time to time to provide transport for activities, and in getting ready for camps.

1st Brookwood meet at the Memorial Hall on Friday evenings, just off Connaught Road in Brookwood. The group takes children from the local area, covering Brookwood, parts of Knaphill (from Sainsbury’s towards Brookwood), Pirbright and parts of Worplesdon (Fox Corner to Brookwood)
