A Cub pack was formed in 1961 in Burrington. The Scout troop, known as the 1st Burrington, was added in 1964, and we moved to our present headquarters (the former Methodist chapel in School Road) in 1970, when the name was changed to 1st Burrington & Wrington Scout Group.

The Brownies and Guides joined us shortly afterwards - 1st Brownies started in 1964 and 2nd Brownies in 1966. We have no Venture Unit, but the District Unit, known as the Trogs, meet in our HQ.

Beavers and Rainbows are more recent additions to our Group, that now has some 250 members, who come mainly from the villages of Wrington, Redhill, Langford and Churchill. 

It's now titled the Burrington & Wrington Scout & Guide Group
