Our Scout Group serves the villages of Claydon, Barham and Great and Little Blakenham in Suffolk. We'd love to hear from you if you'd like to volunteer to help or to register your son or daughter to the group. Our Group has three thriving sections: Beavers (aged 6-8), Cubs (aged 8-10 1/2) and Scouts (aged 10 1/2 to 14).

In June 1st Claydon Scout Group took ownership of a new marquee tent, as the old one needed to be replaced after many years’ service at scout and family camps. The Group won a Locality Grant from Mid Suffolk Council, sponsored by local Councillor, John Whitehead. The Grant was for £1,350. Terry Sutton, Group Scout Leader said “this was a very generous donation to the group and ensures that we can continue to provide an all-round activity programme for the boys and girls of Claydon, Barham, Great and Little Blakenham.” The group will be using the tent at their 70th Anniversary Family Camp in July for its first outing and hopefully many more years after.
