Welcome to 1st Woodford Halse Scout Group

1st Woodford Halse Scout Group has been in the village for over 60 years. Meeting at the Dryden Hall every week in school term with approximately 65 young people, the group is going from strength to strength. Our Scout leaders deliver a full, active and varied programme to Beavers, Cubs & Scouts including the usual hikes, camping, rifle shooting and knot work that we all associate with Scouting as well as the opportunity to participate in Daventry district and County Outdoor activities such as wall climbing, canoeing, archery and zorbing to name but a few. The activities, learning and experiences are endless.

Our group is run by a team of volunteers who range from adults who have been involved with the Scouting movement for years or adults who want to get involved to inspire young people to learn and have fun. We are always looking for adult helpers to volunteer on a flexible basis for as much or as little time as you wish. This means that you can fit Scouting around family, friends and other commitments. If you feel that you would be able to offer some time to the group we would welcome your input to continue the Scouting movement in the village either by directly working with our Young People or in a support role to the team or individual.

New Years Resolutions

It doesn’t seem possible but 2013 is now upon us.  I’m sure like me you’ve thought about the changes you’d like to make in 2013 and maybe even have a few New Years Resolutions… you might even manage to keep them until end of February…

Maybe your New Year resolution was to spend more time with your children, or to give something back to the local community, maybe you want to develop some new skills or push yourself and step outside your comfort zone.  Well the great news is, is that there has never been a better time to volunteer in scouting.

As a volunteer within our group you’ll have the opportunity to do all this and more, and what’s more our flexible approach to volunteering means that we’ll have an opportunity to suit you, whether you can commit to a couple of hours a month or a couple of hours a week we’ve  got something for you, so lets all make 2013 the best year yet at Woodford Halse and all get involved.
