Welcome to Bristol South

Hello and Welcome to Bristol South Scout District, this website is ‘growing and expanding’, therefore, not all pages may have full information displayed. Please fell free to browse or use the ‘Contact’ page to get in touch.

NB: We are all still feeling the effects of Coronavirus restrictions etc to some degree or another, groups may not yet have fully started back fully to their usual programme or if the premises in which they meet are not their own, access may have some restrictions still in place so please be patient with us. As time progresses it is hoped more activities will be possible/permitted though please bear with us due to individual and group circumstances.

For the Scout Association policies and procedures regarding the pandemic please click on the ‘Covid-19’ bar at the top of this page.

We are part of the world wide family of Scouting which has around 31 million members and growing across the world!

Happy browsing and Thank You for your interest.
