Created with Sketch.

Welcome to the
“1st A&L”

1st Aylburton and Lydney Scout Group is one of the oldest Groups registered in the District. We are a close-knit Group, with all the sections thriving and a varied programme.


We encourage parents to be involved and maintain regular communication with families by termly newsletter, lively parents evenings and Group activities.


The summer term is our favourite because the weekly meetings are then held in Lydney Deer Park, the District Camp site.

For more information about Scouting in the Lydney area please contact us via this website.
