We are an active local group of Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We have one Beaver colony and one Cub pack that meet in Puckeridge at the Community Centre on a Tuesday evening and another Cub pack that meets in Braughing on a Wednesday evening.
We have two Scout troops that meet on a Friday night one at Puckeridge Community Centre and one at Standon Village Hall. We are a co-ed group (ie boys and girls!) and open to young people from every faith and background.
We also have a Scout and Guide band.
We are always looking for adult help/support - if you would like to help out in any way please let us know.

What do Beavers, Cubs and Scouts do?..........lots!
Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.
There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or activities such as canoeing. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of fun outdoor activities.
Scouting is for young people aged between 10½ and 15½ years who want to make friends and develop their widening interests in a way that are both educational and fun - young people who want a break from the usual after school routine of homework, games and watching television.
Our activities are about action and involvement and mean more than just camping. Hiking, rock climbing, gliding, sailing, pioneering, canoeing, parascending, abseiling, putting on shows and exhibitions, motor mechanics, electronics, photography - the list is endless! Scouts are also given the chance to learn skills in survival, cooking and first aid.
