Welcome to Bristol South

Hello and Welcome to Bristol South Scout District, this website is ‘growing and expanding’, therefore, please feel free to browse or use the ‘Contact’ page to get in touch, if there is something you cannot find or want to ask a question.

For most the pandemic is a distant memory, we recognise there are those who feel vulnerable and will be as supportive as we can. As time progresses more activities, both old favourites have returned and new ones will always be developed and shared. Unprecedented demand for places has meant that many groups are operating waiting lists, so please be patient, or if you could help as an adult volunteer, either regularly or in a supporting role please do get in touch. “Many hands make light work”.

We are part of the world wide family of Scouting which has around 31 million members, locally, within our ‘Scout County’ [Avon], nationally and growing across the world!

Happy browsing and Thank You for your interest.
