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

Return to face to face scouting

Earlier this month all sections returned to Face to Face Scouting and were delighted with how it's going. The behaviour of our young people has been tremendous and the feedback has been fantastic.

This has all been achieved by the work of our volunteers who have strived to keep on Scouting through these difficult times.

Well done to everyone involved!

Grounds improvements

You may have noticed there's been huge amounts of work happening within our grounds recently, As we return to Face to Face Scouting it's much easier to run a Covid safe meeting outdoors.

We have an amazing match funding opportunity this week through local giving, we have a £10k target to improve the accessibility and facilities within our grounds as we continue Face to Face Scouting into the winter months, with outdoor shelters, pathways and more.

For every £1 donated, it will be doubled, and don't forget gift aid too. Please spread the word and help us achieve our goal.



Don't miss Durham Scouts Pap-a-Pumpkin this Halloween, log your Pumpkin on the map and hunt out as many Pumpkins as possible this Halloween weekend.

Happy Halloween 🎃 


In our Risk Assessment we have recognized we will need more adult volunteers, if you thing you can help please let us know, it might be once a week, month or term. All help is greatly appreciated and vital to provide Scouting to the young people of the group.

Food bank

We're delighted that the Kind Community Support Group have moved into 1st Burnmoor, they offer a food bank service every Monday and Friday 10:00-12:00 from the Scout Hall.

Waiting list

We're working hard to get young people on the waiting list into the group, we will be in touch via email when we have a place for your child.


For more updates please join our Facebook group where our leaders update with photos and news from meetings and events.

Thank you to all our volunteers who have been working hard to keep Scouting going on though Covid and to all those helping as we prepare to return.
