5th Frome (Hayesdown) Scout Group

East Somerset District Scouts, Somerset

Welcome to The Adventure

Beaver Scouts Cubs Scouts Scouts
(6 - 8 years old) (8 - 10½ years old) (10½ - 14 years old)
Who are we?

Here at 5th Frome, we provide Scouting to young people in and around the Frome area of Somerset. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. Each week, The Scouts give over 460,000 young people the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed, now and in the future. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.

We’re a worldwide movement, creating stronger communities and inspiring positive futures. We believe in bringing people together. We celebrate diversity and stand against intolerance, always.

Family Walk - 11th July 2019
06/07/2019 By Paul Marsh

Please note that on Thursday 11th  July there will be no meetings at Tedbury Camp Site due to its use by other external organisations. Therefore as we do at this time each year, we will be running a family walk on the Thursday evening for all age groups i.e. Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and encourage all family members to come along (Dogs also welcome)  and join us for the evening. We will also running a scavenger hunt (Download Here) where you have to find objects starting with any of the letters that make up "Frome Scouts" (Participants may want to bring a small bag or rucksack to collect objects). On our return to the church, leaders will check and score each sheet.


This year the walk will start at the Church at East Woodlands (see location on the left hand side of the map HERE) at 6:00pm and will take us on a circular route through rolling countryside around Roddenbury Hill on the Longleat Estate and back. It is expected that we will arrive back at the church car park by approx 8:15pm. There will be refreshments just over half way round, which Ray will provide when we get to Friggle Street (see the top of the map HERE).


If you are just dropping your Beaver, Cub or Scout and not coming on the walk yourself that's fine, please just ensure your child finds their respective leader and lets them know
