The 1st Marks Tey Scout Group provides “Scouting” for young people in the Marks Tey, Little Tey and Copford areas. The Group originally started in 1926 but closed in 1929.

The Group was re-formed in 1956 and is currently run by a team of volunteers who give up their time freely to provide exciting and challenging programmes for the young people to undertake.

At present we offer three “Sections” of the Scouting family – Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts with the contacts within the Scouting Movement to provide for any young person wishing to progress to Explorer Scouts.

The Group undertakes a number of fund-raising events throughout the year, including our “famous” Christmas Float. Some funds are kept to aid the Group and we also make regular donations to other local charities.

At present the Group is full in all Sections, where we have:

  • 24 Beavers
  • 24 Cubs
  • 19 Scouts
  • 6 Warranted Leaders
  • Numerous Adult Helpers
  • Total Membership approximately 85.
We do operate a Waiting List process within our Group and if you would like to put your child down for Scouting please click on New Member Enquiry
 
The 1st Marks Tey Scout Group is ably assisted by a strong and active Executive Committee.
