Guides, Brownies & Rainbows


 Guides, Brownies & Rainbows have regular meetings for girls here in Wootton.Brownies, (for girls aged 7 – 10) do it all! Their meetings are full of challenges, games and activities, usually ones that the Brownies have suggested themselves.

Girls participate in a wide range of activities at their regular meetings, and at special events, day trips, sleepovers, camps and holidays. They can find themselves trying out arts and crafts or recipes, playing energetic games, as well as taking part in community action projects.

Brownies are on Monday evenings at the Scout Hut from 6.00 p.m. to 7.30 p.m.


Rainbows (for girls aged 5 – 7) have fun! They play games, have parties and make things while developing life skills.


They follow a programme called the Rainbow Jigsaw, which involves a wide range of activities and games. Being a Rainbow is all about learning, developing self-confidence, building friendships and, of course, having lots of fun! The Rainbow Jigsaw has four areas: Look – Learn – Laugh – Love

Rainbows are on Mondays from 5.00 – 6.00 p.m.

1st Wootton Scout Group (Reg. Charity No.1005194)

1st Wootton Scout Group is a lively and thriving group, run by a good team of leaders and helpers. Records show that we have been in existence since 1911, originally as a Sea Scout Group but now as a conventional Scout group. We are fortunate to have our own Scout Headquarters in Wootton recreation ground just behind Wootton Primary School. We have three sections, Beavers, Cubs and Scouts and as we like to maintain a high leader-to-child ratio there may be a waiting list for some sections. 1st Wootton Scout Group (Group Scout Leader, Terry Cook)
