Scouting is an open and inclusive organisation for all young people aged 6 to 25 years – and adults too!
South West Notts Scout District covers the Attenborough, Beeston, Bramcote, Chilwell, Toton, Stapleford and Trowell areas on the outskirts of Nottingham.
Our 12 Scout Groups and 5 Explorer Scout Units currently provide a challenging and adventurous programme of fun-packed activities for over 800 young people.
The 2nd Beeston Sea Scouts held the first of a series of “taster sessions” when young people were invited to participate in a “day on the canal”.
The Group offers both the “traditional Scouting programme” with the added benefit of opportunities to take part in a range of action-packed water activities. With spare places in all 3 sections (Beavers, Cubs, and Scouts ) they are currently seeking to attract new members.
The Group is also keen to attract additional adult volunteers to help alongside the existing leadership teams. No previous experience is necessary as full training and support is provided.
The Group have a land-based Headquarters on Lilac Grove in Beeston. In addition they have their own Water Activity Centre on Barton Island – visible from Attenborough naturure Reserve – on the River Trent.
Beavers meet on Thursdays from 6.15pm – 7.30pm
Cubs meet on Mondays from 6.45pm – 8.15pm
Scouts meet on Fridays from 7.30pm – 9.00pm
Contact information for the Group can be found here
Beavers, Cubs and Scouts from the 2nd Attenborough Scout Group led the procession of civic dignitaries as they entered St Mary’s Church in Attenborough at the start of this year’s Civic Service on Sunday 25th September
The Union Flag led the procession followed by the Scout, Cub and Beaver section colours which were placed in the sanctuary. They also paraded out and formed a Guard of Honour for the invited guests.
Mayors from across the County attended the service to mark Councillor Graham Haywood’s year as Mayor of the Borough of Broxtowe.
The Mayor, himself a former scout leader at the 2nd Attenborough Scout Group, was delighted that members of the Group were able to take an active part in the service. He thanked them for attending, congratulated them on their smart appearance and invited them back to join the other guests at Attenborough Village Hall for a light buffet after the service.
Simon Clark (District Commissioner) said “It was an honour for the Scouts to be invited to attend this special service. SW Notts Scout District values the strong links we have with Broxtowe Borough Council. This helps us to cement our involvement with community life in the Borough.”
