Join our Scout Group

Our Group Scout Leader manages the membership of and movements within the Scout Group.

Bishops Lydeard Scout Group is a popular and successful group, we currently do have spaces in some sections.

When places become available in any of our Sections, priority will be given to those who have been on the waiting list the longest and places are allocated in the following order of priority:

  • Children of leaders and executive committee members with key roles. Our priority is to provide enthusiastic adult leadership in each section enabling us to run a balanced and exciting programme for our young people. We are always recruiting new leaders and therefore offer priority to children of leaders and committee members.
  • Siblings of Beavers, Cubs or Scouts currently enrolled
  • Members of another Scout Group (Outside of the District) moving into the Area
  • Anyone else on the waiting list

Please be aware that casual conversations with Leaders, or even seemingly formal agreements, regarding getting children on the Group waiting list are not relevant or valid. The only way to place your child on the waiting list is through the links below.


Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
