Our grounds have come on along way since the group took over the extra land around the Scout hall, this year we’re ramping up the pace and coming to some significant milestones.

Please join us on our next grounds day on Saturday the 6th of April from 10am.

As a thank you for everyone’s hard work we’ll be providing bacon sandwiches and it will count towards our young people’s badges too.

We are right on the junction of the A1252 where it meets the B1284 from Chester-le-Steet between Burnmoor and Fence Houses. 
The hall is set down from the road junction with a palasade fence around the grounds.
