1st Yardley Gobion Scout Group

Welcome to 1st Yardley Gobion Scout Group

Our site includes information about our Scout, Cub and Beaver groups, where to put your badges, links to photos and scouting websites, and how to contact us.

Group Background

We are part of the Scout Association, started by Lord Robert Baden Powell in 1907. He arranged a camp to Brownsea Island for 22 boys from a range of backgrounds.

1st Yardley Gobion Scouts was established in 1967, previously known as 1st Whittlebury Scout Group. This was renamed in 2007 to 1st Yardley Gobion Scout Group as it has been based in Yardley Gobion for many years.

Come and join us

We have a long established Cub pack and a fantastic Beaver Colony and now a brand new Scout Section. Thanks to John Anderson and helpers, Scouts for 11-14 year olds will start in January 2011 so if you are interested in helping or you have a child who would like to join at the beginning of this exciting adventure please get in touch.

'10 bins, 4 planks of wood, 3m of rope and a river full of crocodiles. Sounds like a normal Tuesday night.'
