Welcome to our website. 1st Ripley Scouts are a scout group based in the Ripley and Heanor District of Derbyshire. We currently have Beavers, Cubs and Scouts sections at the group and have places available. Please look around the website to look at the what our Young People have been doing and what we will be doing in the future.
This year we are celebrating our 100th Anniversary of Scouting in Ripley. During the year we are putting on a range of activities to celebrate the centenary details of which can be found here. If you have any old photos of scouting in Ripley please feel free to email them to us.
If you want to contact the group you will find our contact details here. For general enquiries feel free to email info@1stRipleyScouts.org Any problems, feedback or photos for the website please email webmaster@1stRipleyScouts.org.
Like most Scout Groups we are always on the look out for new Leaders. At the moment we urgently need Leaders and Assistant Leaders to help out on all our Section nights but any time that you can give would be much appreciated.
If you feel that you could offer your time and skills please contact our Group Scout Leader - Ron Ashton by emailing info@1stRipleyScouts.org or filling in the contact form here.
A huge thank you to everyone that came to the Autumn fayre this year, Dorothy Hutchinson one of our committee members and former Akela received a 70 years service award for all of her hard work for Scouting. We will let you know how much we have raised as soon as possible. See the photos from the day on our Facebook page or by visiting the Autumn Fayre page.
