June 2023


The Scouts, Cubs and Beavers are very well attended and much appreciated – but unfortunately the Brownies have stopped functioning as a result of lack of Leaders. There have been Brownies in Barford for many years and it would be good if we could get it started again. We have everything you will need and training is provided. Although girls can join the Scouting sections, the Brownies have a different approach and this will appeal to some girls.

If you might like to help or want more information please get in touch.

Adults at 1st Barford Scout Group are looking for more volunteer leaders to join them. You can choose the age group of the children that you would enjoy most to help with - no previous experience is necessary as you will be working alongside the existing leadership team and formal training is provided. Each section gives very exciting opportunities for the children and presents its own challenges and rewards.

The role will only take one evening each week plus occasional meetings to plan the activities for the term. An ability to work with young people is required; all sections include both boys and girls. Now is the time for you to volunteer to become a helper, so get in touch with the Group Scout Leader, Martin Russell on 0752 6649210 or via

After 12 years our Brownie leader is going to retire so we need a new leader to take this on. It is a big commitment for one – but if there are 2 or 3 people who would like to work together it is rewarding and can even be enjoyable. There is a thriving Brownie unit of about 14 girls and plenty of equipment. Uniforms and training are provided. Anyone who thinks they might be able to help please contact Hilary Burvill (01926 624950). The Brownies in Barford have a long history and it would be a great shame if we let them lapse.

Hilary writes:
“After running 1st Barford Brownies for many years, it is now time for someone else to take on the girls. I have really enjoyed the challenge of giving our youngsters the opportunity to blossom, learn new skills and become more independent. Should anyone out there be interested in taking on this fun and rewarding role please contact me. As an extra incentive, any new leader would have the potential opportunity to work in a brand new community hall, once it has been built!”

Brownies were the only junior group for girls only, so we are looking for someone who might want to start Rainbows (younger girls) or Guides (older girls). If anyone would like more information please contact me

This group runs the Scout hut on Wasperton Lane and supports the uniformed Youth groups. We have spaces in the ‘100’ club that raises vital funds but also need occasional help with maintaining the building and grounds. If you would like to help, either by joining the 100 club (£12 p.a.), or by doing some occasional gardening, please contact– Rod Scott on 624434 .

The Supporters 200 club now has over 125 members so we now are giving a £100 and three £25 prizes per quarter. If you would like to join, please contact Kate or myself for details.
