5th Petts Wood Scout Group is an active and thriving group based at Petts Wood Methodist Church in South-east London.  We have sections for young people of all ages.

You may have heard that recently The Scout Association has agreed (subject to raising the funds) to sell the whole of Downe to a new charity – Friends of Downe Activity Centre. The charity will have Scouts and Guides at its heart and plan to continue to operate as the activity centre that we all know and love. This does mean that the Bromely Scouts bid has not been successful. And although we have not been directly successful our collective aim was to secure a facility for young people to continue to use generations to come. If Friends of Downe Activity Centre manage to secure the funding this aim will still be achieved. If your able to please feel free to make a new donation to Friends of Downe Activity Centre here:


We currently operate a waiting list for entry into every section. If you would like your child to be added to a waiting list, don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form.
