Scouts and Guides
Buckland Rainbows is for girls between 5 and 7 years old. The current plan is for meetings to restart in September 2021 between 4.15pm and 5.15pm on Monday at Buckland Reading Room.
Buckland Brownies currently meet between 5.30pm and 7pm each Monday on Rectory Green (opposite Glebe House, Rectory Lane). Brownies is for girls between 7 and 10 years old.
Our Guide unit, which is now based in Brockham, meets on Tuesday evenings between 7pm and 8.30pm and is open to girls between 10 and 14 years old.
If you have a daughter who would like to join Rainbows, Brownies or Guides, or if you are interested in volunteering to help at any of the groups, please contact Buckland Leader, Jane Stewart. Contact details for Jane can be found on the back cover of the Buckland 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.
