1st Woodend Scout Group currently comprises just over 100 youngsters aged 6 to 14, in one Beaver Colony, two Cub Packs and two Scout Troops, all meeting in the Scout HQ, Talbots End, Cromhall, behind the Village Hall. Although most of our members live in Cromhall or Charfield, many travel in from the numerous surrounding villages.
We cover the Thornbury, Falfield and Stone area, enabling girls and young women to develop their potential and make a difference to the world. We have Rainbow, Brownie, Guide and Senior Section units open to any female aged 5-26 years old supported by Guiders and helpers of all ages.
Being a Rainbow, Brownie, Guide or member of the Senior Section opens up a world of opportunities that will last a lifetime. It provides a safe, girl-only space to explore the activities, issues and possibilities that are available to girls today. Please click below to register through the Girlguiding UK national website.
The board consists of young people coming together to explore issues such as internet safety, missing children, and the way services work with young people. Members can achieve a volunteering award, which can be used as part of DofE.
It allows young people to voice their opinion and make changes to things that affect the communities we live in.
We meet regularly with senior management and councillors to share our opinions and views and have a say in the development of the service. We also keep them up to date with young people’s issues.
We have young people representing each area of South Gloucestershire, aged between 13 – 19 (25 for young people with learning difficulties and/ or disabilities).
