Skills for Life

It’s exciting being involved with the 1st Haywards Heath Scout Group. We firmly believe that through everyday Scouting adventures, young people will experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet lifelong friends along the way.

Welcome to 1st Haywards Heath

Based in Franklands Village in Haywards Heath and part of the Mid Sussex Scout District, we are a thriving and active Scout Group, which offers the full Scouting experience every week to around 70 young people aged 6-14 from Haywards Heath and the surrounding areas. Why not join us to experience memorable adventures and take part in our Scouting programme?

The Group has grown steadily in all Sections in recent years, following the efforts and hard work of our Leadership team, a fully supportive Group Exec and our Section Leaders.

Our thriving and active Scout Group has a dedicated leadership team who produce exciting, varied and dynamic programmes for the young people in our area, teaching life skills as well as having plenty of fun along the way! We hold regular term time weekly meetings at our purpose-built Scout hut, as well as sleepovers, weekend camping trips and day trips to support badge activities.
