The Group is lead by the Group Scout Leader – David Shickle (GSL) with the help of many other volunteers. It is open to all boys and girls aged 6-25, regardless of race, colour or religion.

The Group runs many activities throughout the year from Epsom Fireworks Display in November to Water Weekend in the Spring.

The full title of the Group is “7th Epsom (Methodist) Scout Group”. The Group was formed in 1927 by members of the Epsom Methodist Church in whose premises meetings were held until our first headquarters, a Nissen hut, was erected on land at the rear of the church shortly after the 1939/45 war. This was replaced by our present headquarters in 1964.


The Group is part of the Scout Association, a registered charity number 306101.
