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.

The Scouting that we offer:
The Scouting Programme is based around three main themes: outdoor and adventure, world, and skills. Scouting is offered in aged based sections with activities in each of the themes tailored to suit our four sections.

The Squirrel Drey is the newest and youngest section of our Scout Group. 4–5-year-olds can really benefit from our activities.
