1st Fressingfield Scout Group has been in existence for over 100 years and is based in the heart of the North Suffolk village of Fressingfield.

We can be found at the Scout Headquarters, Goodwin Hall, New Street, Fressingfield, IP21 5PG (just behind the Methodist Chapel). We draw members in from villages around a ten-mile radius and beyond. We hope you have great fun and find friendship with us.

We are active four times a week covering the age range of 6 – 18 years.

HQ Update

We are currently in the process of raising funds for a Headquarters as our present meeting place, Goodwin Hall, is no longer fit for purpose.

“Work continues to progress at our new site off Priory Road, a perimeter fence is now in place and temporary storage is on site. Environmental works have started with site clearance and the creation of new wildlife area is well underway, including the excavation of the pond and installation of a pond dipping area and fencing. Cowham’s Car and Commercial garage are working on turning the old agricultural trailer into an outdoor stage and we hope to have it returned to site during the autumn. The Campfire circle area has also been started and we are currently exploring funding opportunities for the outdoor Chapel and a small assault course.” – Autumn Newsletter 2018


Building On Community Foundations Campaign

The ‘Building of Community Foundations’ campaign has started well, but we still need lots more squares sold before we can start the ground works. PLEASE, circulate the form and information (found here) to your family, friends, employer, local businesses and organisations. For just £50 a square this is an investment in the future success of our Scout Group and for our members. If £50 is a bit of a stretch why not get five members of the same family to chip in a tenner each and buy a ‘family named’ square?
