1st Dullingham and Stetchworth B-P Scout Group was formed in January 2015 following the closure of the 1st Dullingham and Stetchworth Scout Group, formerly part of the Scout Association.

The group made the move to the Baden-Powell Scouts' Association in search of a more traditional approach to Scouting. We are members of the World Federation of Independent Scouts (WFIS).

ALL the images in the Archive files are given freely to us from the parents and or members of the Group. Our history is important to us all and our Scouting History displayed on this website, proves to all that our historic links have helped us get to where we are now.

The most valuable commodity that anybody can give a Scout Group is time, and we always need more volunteers. Perhaps you'd like to be a Leader, administrator or skills instructor?

Why Volunteer?

Some people do it to add to their CV, others do it to give something back to the community. It is an exciting challenge and most importantly of all, it is fun. These kids can be hilarious, and working with them is very rewarding. So…could you help?

  • None of our Leaders are paid - they are all volunteers (free uniform and expenses covered).
  • The majority of our Leaders have full time jobs and a family.
  • We have lots of female Leaders, including both Beaver Leaders.
  • Leaders get involved because they want to have fun, learn new skills and make new friends.

Leaders don't have to be 'superheroes' who know everything.

They are given training on the job and learn new skills as they go along. The one thing that unites our Leaders is the energy and enthusiasm they have for giving young people the adventure of Scouting

How do you Volunteer?

If you are interested in helping out with one of our Sections or you want to help out in another way such as being an Exec Member or helping with admin or fundraising then please complete the Contact Us Form below.

How can you help?

Volunteering is very flexible, from four hours a week to an hour every few months. There are many ways you can help, here are just a few:

  • Section Leader
  • Assistant Leader
  • Sectional Assistant
  • Occasional Helper
  • Fundraising Group
  • Executive Committee Member

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, of course! Scouts has been co-educational for many years now. We have a mix of leaders in our team as well.

We do too many activities to list in one place, however it ranges from camping, hiking, wood fire cooking, kayaking, and many more…

All members pay a membership subscription to the group. This is costs £30 for Beavers, £35 for Wolf Cubs, and £40 for Scouts and £25 for Senior Scouts. All membership subscriptions are per school term (three times per year). This includes:
  • Membership of the Group, District, County and national Scout Association
  • Insurance
  • Meeting place costs
  • Cost of materials and resources for weekly meetings
Camps, trips and some other activities are charged separately. Trips are generally charged “at cost” although we generally get a lower admission rate than the general public.

All our members wear a uniform which can be purchased by arranging it with one of our leaders.

All our leaders undertake DBS (formerly known as CRB) checks, and a strict appointment procedure is followed. The leader in charge of each section (and many of our other leaders) have undertaken extensive training, covering areas such as Safeguarding, Health & Safety, Challenging Behaviour, etc. The group has clear behaviour policies which are followed, and we follow The Scout Association's “Young People First” safeguarding procedures. A qualified first aider is present for all activities and appropriate first aid equipment is available whether we are in the hall or out and about.

Scouting encourages young people to take sensible risks in a controlled way. Your child will climb trees, light fires and learn to use knives, as well as taking part in a number of adventurous activities. We recognise that minor injuries are an inevitable part of childhood, but follow risk assessment and operating procedures to ensure that all activities are as safe as possible.
