Welcome

The 34th Colchester Scout Group is part of the Colchester Estuary District in Essex, the Scout Group Headquarters is located at 296 Shrub End Road, Colchester, CO3 4RL

Our Scout Troop meets in the HQ Building on Monday between 7.00pm and 9.00pm

Unfortunately we do not have a Beaver Colony or Cub Pack as we have no volunteer leaders to run those two sections.

Our group participates in various activities as part of the District or the County. This gives opportunities for your children to meet other people and make friends.

Subscriptions

Payments are normally only accepted by Standing Order at £8.00 a month – ask a leader or download the form from here.

If you would prefer to pay for each term the cost is £32 payable in advance. As there are three terms the annual cost by either method is £96. This money covers:-

Annual fees to Scouting organisations at District, County and National level. It also pays for insurance and leader training and for the various training aids we use in the Group.

Some money is kept by us to cover running costs such as electric and water bills. We also need to buy badges and equipment for our section meetings.

The largest drain on our resources is the cost of maintaining a 70 year old wooden building. We had to replace the old asbestos roof a couple of years ago and we have now replaced all the exterior wooden cladding. We have installed new double glazed windows and completely re-wired the building.

Scouting is a charitable organisation so we are entitled to claim gift aid on your donations. We can claim 25p from the tax people for every pound you donate. Please help us by downloading a form and returning it to one of the leaders.
