Welcome to the 11th Purley (St James) Website!
We are an active group of approximately 60 members, drawing from the Purley, Kenley and Riddlesdown areas.
Led by experienced leaders and supported by Young Leaders and parents, our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts engage in a wide variety of exciting Scouting activities, learning important life skills along the way.
As well as taking part in activities during their weekly meetings, children in each section have the opportunity to go on outings, camps and get involved in district-wide events, bringing them together with other Scout groups in the area.
How to find us
We currently meet at the 19th Purley Headquarters at Wickenden Hall, off Mitchley Hill, South Croydon.
To reach the hall, turn into the gated road near the junction with Mitchley Avenue. Then, take the first right turn onto the track towards the car park at the hall.
Contact us for more information on meeting times.
