60th Bradford North, Thornton Scout Group

60th Bradford North, Thornton Scout Group are based at Thornton Primary School, in the western suburbs of the City of Bradford, England. We fall under the district of Bradford North, and the County of West Yorkshire.

We presently have 4 active sections (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers) running from our HQ, covering an age range of  6 through 18 years.

As with all Scout Groups we are a voluntary organisation, meaning that all our adult support volunteer their time towards the running of the group, activities and events. As a registered charity we also heavily rely on donations and fundraising to continue supporting our Youth Members and to purchase/maintain our equipment and Scout Hut.

If you would like to join, or require further infomation about our Scout Group please email Steve Preston ste_preston@hotmail.com

Based in Thornton, Bradford

Located in Thornton, our group is part of the Bradford North District. We will however welcome anyone in the area willing to travel. We presently have members travelling to 60th from Clayton, Allerton, Denholme and Queensbury.
