Welcome to the 1st Burnmoor monthly blog where we will keep you up to date with group news and upcoming events.

Happy New year

We hope you have enjoyed a fantastic Christmas holiday, Happy New Year from everyone at 1st Burnmoor, we have a fantastic year of Scouting ahead.

All programs have been updated on Parent Portal and across the website (Scouts will be finishing their own program next week).

Santa in the STREETS

Once again 1st Burnmoor Scouts helped Santa spread some Christmas cheer before Christmas. Thank you to everyone involved including those who spread the word, we raised over £500 for the group as well as money for others.


We will be holding our AGM on 16th of January from 6:30pm at the Scout Hall. All parents are welcome to attend to show their support.

pre-loved uniforms

We have started to hold donated uniforms that people can have for free, for swaps or for a donation to the group.

If you have a uniform you no longer need please consider donating it, it could benifit another family and it's good for the environment.

Please remove all badges (and keep them for your blanket).


We've identified we need several new volunteers to help with section meetings, this may be helping run activities, preparing equipment or just making the juice.

If you think you can help please see 1stburnmoor.co.uk/join for more information.
