Farsley Scouts in the community

Farsley Scout Group has a good community standing and our constantly increasing numbers reassure that this is the case.

In the past 4 years we have opened a second Beaver Colony, a second Cub Pack and a second Scout Troop.

Our ‘Wanting to Join’ list is ever lengthening, with children from not only Farsley but also surrounding areas wishing to be a part of the group.

Farsley Scout Group has, over many years, participated in several annual village and other local events, including and not limited to:

  • Farsley Aston Martin Day – assisting with traffic management and concours parking.
  • Farsley In Bloom – planting bulbs in various places.
  • Farsley Festival – promoting activities for children.
  • Rodley Nature Reserve – helping to set up/take down stalls at their Summer Fayre and providing fun activities for youngsters.
  • Farsley Lights – walking in the Parade. In the past few years we have provided a decorated Float to boost the Parade.
  • Remembrance Day – running a poppy stall.
  • Farsley Cenotaph Remembrance Service – attending and laying a Poppy Wreath.

This Sunday saw the group attend the Rotary Shoebox service at Farsley Community Church. In excess of 100 shoeboxes were donated! Below is a photo of one of our Beavers, Alex Robey, holding the beaver flag.
