Sections in our Group

Welcome to 1st Brenchley and Matfield Scout Group

We are one of 8 groups within the Weald District in Kent. We have currently have active sections for Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, for boys and girls from age 6 to 14 years old.   

In 2018 we celebrated 90 years of scouting at Brenchley & Matfield.  Children tend to go to their local scout group - we have children from Brenchley, Matfield, Horsmonden and Lamberhurst - as well as further afield.  It's a great way for children to meet others in the local area, and especially good for scouts enabling them to keep in touch with their primary school friends if they go to different secondary schools. 

We meet weekly in term time at Brenchley Scout HQ on Brenchley Road - just off the recreational ground.  We also frequently meet at Lordship Wood, near the church in Horsmonden.  The wood is owned by the Weald District, but as it is so close we use it frequently throughout the year.
