1st Thornbury Scout Group

Explore other pages in: Parents and kids

Scouts logo

1st Thornbury Scouts comprises six sections, two each of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and provides scouting for boys and girls.

There is an associated Explorer unit that meets at Sinclair Hall.

The Group is based at Sinclair Hall, Park Road and currently caters for some 160 boys and girls with an active waiting list.

The Group is the largest in Cotswold Edge District and provides action and adventure for all ages between 5 and 14.

Group activities over the past year have included:-

Membership

Climbing

Although there is a waiting list for all Sections it is possible to get a VIP Pass to the front of the queue by parents/guardians joining as Sectional Assistants. This does not necessarily have to be in the same Section as the youngster. All Sections from time to time are threatened with closure because of the lack of adult volunteer help and this is one way in which we have been successful in recruiting the required assistance and maintaining the level of Scouting we currently offer.

1st Thornbury Scout Group - Sinclair Hall

Scouts logo

Sinclair Hall is our own premises and is named for our previous GSL who gave us in excess of 25 years leadership.

The hall comprises a main building with kitchen and toilet facilities and a separate, smaller, annex.

Whilst we are lucky to have our own premises it is a double edge sword! In order to maintain the site to the highest standard of health and safety we need to regularly invest both time and money. Consequently we have a huge responsibility to maintain our finances in a professional manner and balance subscription levels with fund raising efforts.

If you can help with administration skills, maintenance skills, materials and/or funds please contact the Group Chairman.

The Executive Committee meets once every other month and is responsible for the administration of the site and the funding of the Group as a whole.
