Welcome to the online home of Scouting in Suffolk. We'll aim to bring you all the latest news and resources we can to help you in the day to day fun, challenges and adventures in Scouting, regardless if you're a parent, young person or leader!
We hope you find this website useful and if there’s something you would like to see, something we have spelled wrongly or you just want to let us know about something, then please get in touch via the "Contact Us" links!
Jenny's Journal - May 15IT’S fabulous to have the light nights and spring-like weather with us at last. The camping season will be in full swing soon and it is timely to remind you all of the Policy on alcohol Policy Organisation and Rules 2.4.d “During ‘off duty’ periods, adults in Scouting also need to take into account the effects alcohol can have and how it may affect their fitness to fulfil their Scouting duties. “Under no circumstances should young people under the age of 18 be allowed to consume alcohol during Scouting events.” Please do keep this in mind.
Our numbers dipped this year in the Annual Census and the County is 1% down on membership from last year. Some Districts did exceedingly well in spite of what has happened with Compass! Keith Gleen is busy with the Growth Certificates and I look forward to presenting them.

DofE Walking Expeditions in 2015 - UpdateNOTICE:
From Cath Nice; It is with great regret that we have cancelled the March training this weekend due to lack of interest.
I understand that there are a number of people interested in the DofE and we need enough participants to make it viable to run the training weekend Friday 17 to Sunday 19 April 2015 for ALL levels of the award.
Therefore please can you ensure that all forms and cheques for the deposit are received by 31 March 2015 at the very latest.
