Activities Directory

A new version of the Derbyshire Scout Activity Directory is now available

Following the success of previous booklets, we have produced an updated electronic version containing all of the latest information for Activity contacts and events in Derbyshire. As Derbyshire Scouting continues to grow and thrive, we are excited to see our Active Support Units doing the same. Over the past few years we have seen several new Activity Support Units to add to our existing portfolio of Teams.

We hope that this information will inspire you to make use of the wealth of activities and support on your doorstep as we prepare young people with skills for life
