Welcome to 1st Farnsfield

Welcome, your child is joining over 31 million young people from all over the world who enjoy the fun, friendship and adventure that is Scouting. This pack will give you information about Scouting, what it means to be a scout and what your child is likely to experience.

If you just want a quick read then read pages 3 and 4 then read the rest later. We have a “Squirrels in a Nutshell” parent guide found at the bottom of this page too.

To download a copy of the welcome pack above please click here. We also have a specific Squirrels welcome pack which you can find here.

Welcome to the adventure!
