Wood Badges

Since September 1919 adult volunteers in the Scouts have been awarded the Wood Badge on the completion of their leader training.  

The current training is module driven in a combination of courses, 1:1 sessions, workbooks and validation of practical skills; drawing from the leaders life knowledge and experience.

It is mandatory that a leader complete the training within 3 years of taking on a role; if a leader changes role they have to revalidate certain modules of the training and additional modules if their role is a ‘managerial’ role(GSL,ADC).

Please discuss with your Training Adviser to progress your training. Wood Badge Training Link

HQ process applications throughout the year and issues Wood Badge Beads and Certificates 4 times a year.

Readiness Risk Level moves to RED in England

The Scout Association has announced that for the duration of the 4 week lockdown the Readiness Risk Level moves to RED in England.

E-mails should have been received by all members.


This means that all face to face scouting must cease from Thursday 5th November 2020.

Each Volunteer, Section, Groups/Unit will decide on the level of virtual Scouting that they can provide – all decisions will be respected and full support given in all circumstances.

Both the District Scout Shop and Garners Field will close during this 4 week lockdown.

I will let you know once the TSA changes their risk level and the conditions of that level.

Please stay safe and if you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me.
