Elphwood is preliminary a Scout Group and its young people come first. Our hall is available to book whenever our three sections are not holding a regular meeting.
We also share our hall with Girlguiding and they are long-term hirers of Elphwood Hall, therefore in a nutshell, our hall is not normally available for hire from 3pm Monday to Friday.
Our hall is very popular and is usually fully booked up months ahead, especially during the spring and summer. Please make enquires at your earliest opportunity
Please contact Joy Morley on 07905 554546 for all bookings and availibility
Our building has two spaces to park cars with Elphwood. These are allocated to leaders only on the evenings they hold their meetings
When you hire our hall, these spaces are allocated to the hirers. Adjoining Elphwood is a public car park run by Epping Forest District Council. The car park holds 100 cars and is Pay and Display.
You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting. Do you have first aid knowledge? Are you good with numbers? Handy in the kitchen? or are you a DIY whizz? We all have useful skills and you can volunteer and help in many ways.
Volunteering is free and easy, fun and flexible – how much time you give is completely up to you. Whether you help out once a fortnight, month, just at special events or camps, there is bound to be a role you can play, and no matter how you get involved, we'll make sure you're properly trained and supported.
Many of our helpers and leaders are parents of our young members because they’ve seen firsthand how Scouting benefits young people and want to give something back. It’s also a chance to spend more time with your children and learn new skills.
As long as you're over 18, you can help out as an adult volunteer in Scouting. There is no upper age limit for adult volunteers. If you are aged between 14 to 18, there is the option of becoming a Young Leader.
Speak directly to a section leader to discuss how you could become involved. If are completely new to scouting, please contact our Group Scout Leader; Giles Page on 07853 098820
