We are an active group of approximately 45 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, they also 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.
