1st Cowfold Scout Group

1st Cowfold Scout Group was first formed in 1963, and today we are a thriving Scout Group of over 120 young people ranging from Beaver Scouts (ages 6-8), through Cubs (ages 8-10.5), Scouts (ages 10.5-14) and Taurus Explorers (ages 14-18).  Although we are based in Cowfold we also have many members from our surrounding villages of Lower Beeding, Plummers Plain, Handcross, Nuthurst, Mannings Heath, Bolney, Partridge Green, Twineham, Wineham and Monks Gate.


Our Headquarters is just on the playing field in Cowfold itself.  The various sections meet as follows –


Beavers – Fridays in term time, 5.45pm – 6.45pm

Cubs – Thursdays in term time, 6.45pm – 8.15pm

Scouts – Fridays in term time, 7pm – 8.30pm

Taurus Explorers – Fridays in term time, 7pm – 8.30pm
