1st Quarry Bank Scouts are part of Dudley Scout District; which is part of West Mercia Scout County. We are a Charity and aim to offer outdoor activities and experiences to all young people within the local area.
We have members who come from Quarry Bank, Lye, Stourbridge, Cradley Heath, Withymoor, Amblecote, Netherton, Tividale, Kingswinford, Dudley, Brierley Hill. Our members come from all the local schools; Thorns Primary, Mount Pleasant, Quarry Bank Primary, Peters Hill, Withymoor and others. Chances are when you join, there will be someone you know.
In the Community:
We attend the Remembrance service every Year out of respect for the Fallen Soldiers.
Some of our former members joined with Kingswinford Scouts in the 1970’s and started the Kewford Eagles Football Club that meets at Eagle Park on Swindon Road.

We are a completely self funded entity and rely on Donations as we operate as a charity. All of our adults fulfil voluntary roles and are not paid – contrary to popular belief.
This allowed us to Purchase Group t-Shirts for when we are doing activities out and about in the community.
