Scouts and Guides
Pre-Covid-19 restrictions, Rainbows and Brownies met each Monday, during school terms, in Buckland Reading Room. The busy unit leader would very much appreciate the assistance of a “unit helper” – please consider volunteering if would be able to attend when the Rainbows meet at 4.15pm and/or the Brownies meet at 5.30pm. Contact details for Buckland’s unit leader can be found on the back cover of the parish magazine.
Buckland is fortunate to be located so that it is served by two thriving Scout Districts, Reigate and Dorking, each with several different groups, all of whom provide a full programme of activities for their members.
The closest group in the Dorking District is the Brockham Scout Group (22nd Dorking); they can often be seen travelling around in a red double decker bus (007). Further information about Brockham Scouts on their page of the Brockham Village website
The nearest group in the Reigate District is the 30th Reigate Scout Group who meet in Somers Hall, Slipshoe Street (near the Red Cross). The 30th Reigate Group was founded in 1925, is the largest group in the Reigate District and one of the largest groups in Surrey and the UK.
