Welcome to the website of Melksham Scout Group. We provide a programme of “everyday adventure” for over 70 young people in Melksham on a weekly basis.

Everything the group does relies on volunteers. Whether its leading section meetings, running camps, looking after the hall or raising money, our friendly and active volunteer team are always looking for extra help! Find out how you can get involved!

As a group, we also aim to be at the heart of the community in Melksham. With our hall  being available for use by the wider community, the Group is also keen to get involved in community events locally.

Cubs Blenheim House visit

Cubs visit Blenheim House

 

On the 3rd October Melksham Cubs were invited to Blenheim Care Home to spend an evening with some the residents. They all had a lovely time playing games and chatting over biscuits and squash.
Hopefully the Cubs will be visiting them again soon

Scout Hut – Cladding replacement

Scout huts new cladding, with the help from Persimmon homes

As anyone will have noticed who has seen our Scout Hut recently, it has undergone some major refurbishment. We had the cladding on the wall nearest Clackers Brook replaced a few years ago, but the other three walls were showing increasing signs of water damage and rot.

AGM and Work day at Jubilee Wood

MELKSHAM SCOUT GROUP AGM and BBQ

When: Saturday, 6th May

Where: Jubilee Wood, just off the A350, near Steeple Ashton

The AGM coincides with Melksham Scout Group’s ‘turn’ to help out at the District Camp Site. This site is dedicated for the use of local area Scout and Guide groups and has been slowly transformed from a muddy, farmer’s field, into a tree-screened venue, with washing and cooking facilities, as well as more fun stuff, such as a BMX track and obstacle course. There is still plenty to do, so if you are able to help out, even if only for an hour or two, please do come along (with some old clothes).

Work, a bluebell walk, and a chance for the kids to try out the obstacle course will take place between 10am and 4pm, with a break for a free BBQ lunch and the AGM in the middle. Do come along, see what the Beavers, Cubs and Scouts have been up to this past year and enjoy a burger.
