Welcome to our group….

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

Bently_Copse_Camp

Our members, which include both boys and girls, take part in a wide range of activities including games, crafts, visits, community events, good turns, map reading, camp cooking and first aid along with plenty of outdoor activities. Parents tell us their children benefit hugely from the adventures, fun and friendships they experience. It can help develop social skills and independence, and give them access to some amazing and memorable opportunities.

They will also have the opportunity to take part in the fun and excitement of camps and sleepovers. It’s a real adventure for them.

If you would like to join us please go to our contact us page, we would love to hear from you.

To get an idea of the activities that our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts do please see the recent news items below or visit the “Archived News” section.

Scout hike

Over a weekend in March, four of our scouts hiked over 30km as a team, plotting their own route and hiking it quickly without getting lost. The weekend included setting up their own camp and doing their own catering as a team. This was done as a  part of the Woking District Lightweight competition, around the Petersfield area. Below is a picture of them at camp in between the two days.

Quiz night sucess

Another fantastic annual quiz was held at the Brookwood Memorial Hall on Saturday 10th March 2018 with over 80 people taking part, raising funds for the 1st Brookwood Group. Many thanks to everyone that came along and to those that helped organise and deliver a great evening. Congratulations to the winning team. We look forward to next year’s event.

Reptiles evening

One Friday evening, each of the 1st Brookwood sections enjoyed getting up close and cuddly with a variety of reptiles provided by a local reptile expert from Pentangle Aquatics.

Christmas Tree collections

On Sunday 7th January, a group of Cubs and Scouts from the 1st Brookwood Group collected approximately 70 Christmas trees from residents in Brookwood and Sheets Heath. The trees were then transported to a local collection site. Residents made donations to the group and the initiative raised £567.75 including gift aid to be reclaimed.This year half of the money raised is going to help with fundraising for Woking District Scouts attending the World Jamboree 2019. The collection teams on Sunday were hugely boosted by these Scouts, their parents and other District volunteers. The group would like to thank all the local residents who supported this scheme.

 

Carol Singing at Brookwood Station

Commuters at Brookwood Station were entertained by the 1st Brookwood Group on Friday 15th December when our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sang Christmas carols and handed out mince pies during the evening rush hour. A collection was held for Woking Hospice and we are delighted to announce that a total of £261 was raised on the night from the donations. A huge thank you to everyone that took part, including a number of parents and leaders and thanks also to the local community for their generosity.

Remembrance Day Service

On Sunday 12th November 2017, the 1st Brookwood Group joined members of the armed forces and the Police at a moving Remembrance Day service at Brookwood Cemetary. Each of the 3 sections of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts was well attended despite the cold weather.
