1st Burton Joyce Scout Group rebuilds following Covid pandemic

"We are always keen to recruit additional volunteer Leaders for our Beavers, Cubs and Scout groups! Leaders will be mentored and supported by our Group Scout Leader"


The 1st Burton Joyce Scout Group have had a busy and successful 2023. The Group has been under new leadership post-COVID19, with the Beaver Colony and Cub Pack going from strength to strength.

The young people have been enjoying a range of activities on and off site, including archery, drumming, hikes and trips to the local Fire Station and the Pantomime. They have also been able to attend Beaver and Cub camps this year run from the Scout camp in Sherbrook.

Following the recruitment of new Scout Leaders the Scout Group was able to restart in September and the Scouts have made an exciting start with bouldering trips, a visit to Games Workshop and hikes in the local area.

All three groups participated in the Remembrance parade in November, a key event in the Scouting calendar.

“All the groups have very strong attendance, and I would like to thank all the Leaders for the opportunities they have been able to offer the young people of Burton Joyce.”

Richard added: “In support of our local community the Scouts, Cubs and Beavers packed, wrapped and delivered 35 Christmas parcels to the Framework Housing Association to improve the Christmas experience of those in need of housing support across Nottinghamshire.
