Barnt Green Scout and Guide Centre

Welcome to the Barnt Green Scout and Guide Centre website.

 

Scouting and Guiding in Barnt Green provides a safe and welcoming environment, encouraging young people to achieve their physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential, as individuals and as members of the local, national and international communities.

If you were a Scout or a Guide yourself you may have benefited through:

  • Gaining self-confidence and learning respect, responsibility, self-discipline, teamwork and extending your talents and interests.
  • Enjoyed outdoor adventures, camping, hiking, sports and nature.
  • Formed long lasting friendships and taking part in fun activities together.
The 1st Barnt Green Scouts and Guides at the present time have over 180 children in our community who meet each week including 24 Beavers, 30 Cubs, 24 Scouts, 18 Rainbows, 24 Brownies, 30 Guides, 15 Young Leaders and rangers, 15 volunteer leaders plus a parent Rota system . We also have waiting lists for all sections. There are 16 members of the Trefoil Guild.

Just over four years ago the Barnt Green Scout and Guide Centre was opened for the Scout Group, Guide Units and local community groups to meet in a well constructed building with first class facilities.   Since the opening in December 2011 with increased usage and inclement weather the access road to the Centre has become virtually impassable.

With a grant from Lotto 'Awards for All' and hard work by the Bonfire Committee, Scouters, Guiders and Volunteers enough money has been raised to lay a good quality tarmac surface with limiting speed humps

 

The hard surface which has now been complete will benefit foot passengers, cyclists, wheel chair and disable vehicle owners and allotment holders

With the help from Lotto 'Awards for All', the improvements to the drive leading to the Centre are clear to see.
