Return of Face to Face Scouting

After many months of virtual Scouting over Zoom, the 18th Purley are pleased to announce that we will resume Face to Face the week commencing 19th April 2021.

This will of course be done inline with UK Scouting guidelines. The Leaders will inform the parents via an email from OSM with what this will look like and will vary depending on the activity and location.

Croydon Scouts

We are always on the lookout for Leaders to support our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. We are an established Croydon Scouting Troop, having been formed in 1937 with around 50 members at our HQ in Sanderstead, South Croydon. We have an Eco friendly, solar powered Scout hut with a large private outdoor space.

Being a Leader is extremely rewarding and full training is given. Please have a look at our Volunteering Page for more details on how you can support us and help Young People achieve new #SkillsForLife.

Currently, we are on the lookout for Leaders to support our Cub Pack which meets on Mondays during term time from 6:30pm to 8:00pm.

Please contact our Chairman, Rodney Newman ( in case of any questions.
