62nd Bristol Scout Group is affiliated to Horfield Methodist Church, and located in the old North West Scout District of Bristol. We were formed in 1913 and celebrated our 100th anniversary in 2013. Around 2006/7 we merged with a neighbouring District to form the new Cabot District.

Our youngest members are 6 years old and stretch right up to 14 years of age. Our leaders are, of course, a little older!

We have a busy Group Executive committee which host many fundraisers throughout the year. All our main events are very well supported by the local community as well as parents and friends of the Group.

This is the fourth reinvention of our website since the year 2000. We hope this website will provide you with all the 62nd related information and excitement you could ever wish for!
