Scout & Guide HQ Hire

We do allow our well-appointed premises to be hired when not in use by our own sections. Contact for this is our booking secretary Emily Rigg. The email to use is: scout.guidehq@gmail.com


All sections have met as usual during the Covid-19 epidemic by way of Zoom. At the moment our building is not available for hire open hire until “Covid Safe” procedures are fully implemented. We hope this will be the case by September 2020 at which time some sections may be meeting outside in small groups. If you have any questions about this please contact the section leaders using the email address as above.
