January 2021 – A Brief Update

As of January 2021, the Scout Group, that covers both Oxted and Hurst Green is precluded from any face-to-face scouting activities due to the current lockdown.

As far as possible, our Leaders (all of whom are volunteers) are doing their best to run virtual scouting sessions where possible.

If you are a parent thinking about your child joining Beavers (aged 6&7), Cubs (8-10), Scouts (10-14) then please complete a form (link to the right on this page) or alternatively send an email to phil.hosp@1stoxtedscouts.com and also susie@burnard.co.uk (the Beavers form is not available) and one of us will get back to you.

Can you help out? If you are a parent or any other local adult with some time to give, please do ask about helping us out: we have Beavers, Cubs and Scouts across two locations, one on Chalkpit Lane in Oxted and one on Mill Lane in Hurst Green. We would love to hear from local people, no previous experience needed and you can help out as little or as much as you like to help us deliver Scouting to over 200 local youngsters.

Safe Restart of face-to-face Scouting across Oxted and Hurst Green -Update Sept 2020

Whilst we successfully operated over recent months using Zoom and Virtual Scouting for most of our Sections, across Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers, we are now in a position to work through how we can safely restart face-to-face scouting.

For parents and carers of young people that are already within Scouting in 1st Oxted, we are already in communication and will continue to work with you in the coming weeks.

For anyone else looking to make contact with the Scout Group, please direct your enquiries or questions to:

Phil Hosp, Group Scout Leader – phil.hosp@1stoxtedscouts.com / 07799 062103

We would love to hear from any Adults that might be interested in volunteering and helping us out in some way – every offer of help is greatly appreciated; simply contact Phil Hosp

If you are interested in your youngster joining Scouting, then we operate across the age ranges of 6-7 for Beavers, 8-10 for Cubs, 11-13 for Scouts and 14+ for Explorers. You will find links to joining forms elsewhere on this website or simply contact Phil Hosp
