Scout Cubs & Beavers

Hadlow Down Beavers & Cubs are both part of the 1st Buxted Scout Group and meet on Mondays.
Beavers meet in the Village Hall from 5 to 6 pm
Cubs meet in St. Marks Church from 6.15 to 7.45 pm
Beavers are our youngest members, and generally meet for an hour per week. They enjoy all that Scouting has to offer; being introduced to outdoor activities, having the opportunity to be creative, explore their local community and experience the excitement of a Beaver Scout sleepover with their friends.
The Beaver Colony is the first and youngest section of the Scout Group. Beaver Scouts are young people aged between 6 and 8 years old.  There is core flexibility in the age range:  young people can join from age 6 to 8 years and can move to Cubs from age age 8 to 10 ½  It may sometimes be appropriate to extend this flexibility for young people with additional needs.

For Cubs, excitement and adventure are key. Their programme offers a huge variety of activities surrounding areas of fitness, global and beliefs; whilst allowing them to be creative and get involved in their local communities. Cubs are introduced to exciting outdoor skills and take part in adventurous activities, as well as camps and residential experiences.
The Cub Pack is the second section of the Scout Group following on from Beavers. Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 ½.

Village Litter Picking

Posted on behalf of Rachel Lewis:
As many will be aware a small team of village volunteers litter pick around the village at this time of year before the grass verges grow too long. Unfortunately the present team will not be able to do as much this year as before. Over the past year it has become apparent that there are many in the village keen to contribute to a spirit of village community and so it is hoped that a few people may be willing to volunteer to help out. by clearing verges within the village……. even 30 minutes of your time would be a great help!!
We have all of the equipment: bags, litter picking sticks, gloves, coloured tabards, etc and therefore are just looking for some villagers willing to help.
Once we have a team we will co-ordinate between ourselves who is picking which area and where bags of rubbish can be deposited so that they can then be collected.
Please can you email me at
if you are prepared to help and then we can take it from there.
Once again many thanks for your continued support and keep safe.
Rachel
