1st Fressingfield Scout Group has been in existence since 1908 (one of the earliest formed groups in the world). With our New HQ now installed and fully operational, we are looking to offer the opportunity of Scouting to more young people.

Whether a young person looking to join an adventurous and fulfilling journey, or an adult looking to develop their skills and be welcomed into another family; 1st Fressingfield is the place to be!

We can be found at 1st Fressingfield Scout HQ, Priory Road, Fressingfield, IP21 5PH

Our New HQ

Set in a fenced off acre of land, our headquarters has been designed for us, rearranged internally and refurbished to current standards. With impressive and modern features, we would love to offer the facilities to residents in the locality.

More information around our New HQ, including how to book and how much it costs can be found on our website

The annual subscription for all members is £150 which is preferably paid by standing order in twelve equal payments of £12.50. There is also a £10 set-up fee on registration on the first evening of attendance.

All UK tax-payers are encouraged to complete a Gift Aid form. This doesn’t cost you anything but allows us to claim a significant tax rebate from HMRC on any payments you make to us.

Additional activity and camp fees are also charged, the Group endeavours to keep costs as low as possible. Please email your section leader, or the Group Scout Leader in confidence if you have any financial concerns.
