Serving the local community of Stoke Bishop in NW Bristol for over 70 years, our Group includes multiple sections of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.
What’s our purpose?
We actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society. We give them skills for life. We are also seen as an integral part of the community and actively engage with and support other local organisations and residents.
What activities do we provide?
We challenge our children with a wide range of activities in addition to the usual fun, educational Scouting evenings and camps – for example the Beavers visit local police and fire stations, and practise emergency first aid supervised by local medical students; the Scouts try out various activities such as caving, scuba diving, sailing and sharp shooting.
