About Us

Welcome to 2nd Frampton Cotterell Scout Group. The group has been in existence since October 1964.

We can be found when at our Scout Headquarters, Crossbow House, Scout Hut, School Rd, Frampton Cotterell, Bristol BS36 2DE. We draw our members from the village of Frampton Cotterell and the local area up to a 3-mile radius. We hope you welcome you to the group to have adventures and create memories.

We are a very active group and now have over 100 members ranging from Beavers (aged 6) to leaders (aged, well, a bit more than 6!). We meet over three evenings depending on the section you have joined.

The Group is currently made up of One Beaver Colony, One Cub Pack, and One Scout Troop. We have around twenty uniformed and supporting adults who work with the young people and we are supported by an effective Board of Trustees (Executive Committee).
