About Us

The 1st Locking and Hutton scout group has been around for 89 years and continues to thrive, giving the youth the necessary skills and accomplishments that pushes them.

Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week –  having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

Sign up to help your child discover their ‘thing’: from abseiling to coding to performance art and everything in between. Find your local group in the Group Finder below, fill out the form and someone will be in touch soon.


We are based in:

Locking Village Hall,
Locking,
Weston-super-Mare,
BS24 8AR

Leader’s Experience

”Personally being retired I have the time to give but I must admit at times it feels like my whole life revolves around scouting when I have a loving family with which I would love to spend more quality family time. Whether you can offer time as a leader or enlist of a colony/pack/troop parent rota all time given will be greatly appreciated. We want to give other young people the same opportunities that we have given yours and hope you understand our request. Finally I want you to understand why I became involved in Scouting in 1988 and have continued (with a small break) in Scouting since that date.. Because I want your son or daughter to have the chance to experience achievement, self realisation, compassion for one another, and the joy of doing. I want to give to our children the opportunities I was given by my own Cub/Scout Leaders. I want the world for your child, and plan to give them every opportunity I can for them to take it. When they challenge and surprise themselves, I reap rewards far beyond the time or effort I put in-I receive a better world for my children.“
