4th Brightlingsea Scout Group TERM TIME ONLY
Hello and welcome to 4th Brightlingsea Scout Group’s website. We are an active Scout Group based on the east coast of Essex, inbetween Clacton and Colchester, in the scouting district of Colchester Estuary. We have been established since 1946 and have around 80 boys and girls in three sections Beavers (age 6 – 8), Cubs (age 8 – 10) and Scouts (age 10 – 14) which is supported by an executive committee and the GSL. We are fortunate that we own our scout hut and it sits on 1.5 acres of playing field.
For more information about the sections and our Scout Group please explore our website.
All our units are using the Online Scout Management System which means you can now see how your son / daughter is doing with badges, update any info, see programmes.
We are currently looking for more leaders to help with our scout troop and also to open an Explorer Scout Troop. If interested please contact Ian Wilkinson Group Scout Leader on 07711 903958
In our hey day we had 2 beaver colonies, 3 cub packs, 3 scout troops and 1 venture unit. Unfortunately as time passed volunteers left and numbers dropped. Currently in Brightlingsea we have 3 flourishing units (Ottowa Beaver Colony, Spartan Cubs and Pioneer Scouts), which are all due to the dedication and enthusiasm of the section leaders, assistant leaders and helpers which run the units.
