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.

Our members 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.

Quiz Night

On Saturday 18 March the 1st Brookwood Group Scout Executive Committee will be hosting a quiz night at the Brookwood Memorial Hall. The event will be the main fundraising activity for the year so please join us for a fun packed evening from 7.30pm to 11pm. Please see the events section for further details. We hope to see you there.

Donations of prizes for the raffle would be much appreciated.

Christmas tree collections

On 7th January 1st Brookwood Scouts braved the cold and rain to collect Christmas trees from the households in Brookwood in return for donations from the residents.  

Split into two groups, heading left and right from the Memorial Hall, the dozen or so willing helpers from Cubs, Scouts (and one Beaver) tracked down all the households who had signed up to the scheme, found the donation (either in a somewhat soggy envelope tied to the tree, or via a polite knock at the door), and carried them to one of several piles along the main road, where they were collected by van/trailer and transferred to the temporary recycling point in Pirbright.

It was fantastic to be able to help the community – we were even able to accept a number of on the day additional trees, and the generous donations, totalling £420 for the “collection service”, which was significantly higher than last year, will help fund more exciting activities for the Group.

All agreed that the high point was the additional donation of spare Christmas Candy Canes from one household, which the team savoured on the walk back to the hall.

Thank you to all who took part – the organisers, Cubs and Scouts, and especially the residents of Brookwood for their generosity in supporting the scheme.   

Beavers being busy…

At the last Beavers meeting the task was to create an image of an owl in salt dough working towards the skills challenge badge with expert tutelage from Seren. The Beavers were able to take their creations home, bake and decorate.
