We are the 35th Nottingham (Kingswood) Scout Group. Our group is based in Wollaton, Nottingham, and all meetings are held in the Kingswood Church Hall, Lambourne Drive.

We have our own land at the side of the hall which we use for a range of outside activities.

The Group has three sections: Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

The Beaver colony is open to boys and girls between 6 and 8 years old.

The Cub pack is open to boys and girls between 8 and 10½ years old.

The Scout troop is open to boys and girls between the ages of 10½ and 14.

The 35th is a popular group and usually has a waiting list for new starters. If you contact the leaders as soon as possible we will add your child’s name to any waiting list and endeavour to start him or her at the earliest opportunity. For Beaver Scouts there is no harm in contacting us to place your child on the list regardless of their age.

Although we do our best to find places for children who make contact with us inevitably all children have to wait for a period of time before a place becomes available.  Additionally we prioritise places at Cubs and Scouts for those children already within the group, and at the current time due to the number of Beaver Scouts who will be moving up to Cubs and a large waiting list there is unfortunately no opportunity for children of 8 to 10 years old to join the Cub pack directly.

What we do

As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life.

We encourage young people to do more, learn more and be more. Each week, we help over 460,000 young people aged 6-25 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 help young people develop and improve key life skills. 

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