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.

Whilst the majority of effects of Covid is largely behind us, we recognise there are still significant numbers who may feel effected or vulnerable, we appreciate this and will work to be as supportive as we can. Groups and Units have largely returned to their pre pandemic programmes, however,  please be patient with us. As time progresses more activities will be possible though we do need to consider individual and group circumstances. Unprecedented demand for places has meant that some groups are operating waiting lists, so please be patient.

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.
