All about the group

1st Burgess Hill Scout Group is one of 4 Scout groups in Burgess Hill. Although its headquarters are accessed from Station Road, it is the building that you see on the right hand side of Queen Elizabeth Avenue as you head into town. The group has two Beaver Scout colonies, two Cub packs and two Scout troops, each of the sections meeting on a Monday or a Thursday evening. The building is also home to Glacier Explorer Scouts, one of the District Explorer units.

Fundraising via Amazon Smile

The  group joined the Amazon Smile scheme in July 2018.

In the first quarter of operation we raised over £20. This was at no cost to any of the group members who signed up - all that was needed was to register with Amazon Smile and go through the link. Costs to you are the same whether you use regular Amazon or Amazon Smile when purchasing. For more information contact Margaret, group treasurer, for more information.
