About us…

Our Division is probably the largest in terms of length and square miles within Lancashire North West.

It starts in Garstang and goes north through Lancaster then up the Lune Valley to the top point which is Arkholme, on the border of Kirkby Lonsdale. The Division is a good mixture of rural villages, market towns and the City of Lancaster.

We have 5 Districts; Garstang Rural, Lune Valley, Lancaster East, Lancaster West and Lancaster Riverside.

All the different sections of guiding are represented our Division from Rainbows through to the Trefoil Guild. We are growing our Ranger provision, with new Lancaster units opening in 2018 and another expected in 2019, these join a long-standing and very active unit in Garstang.

The Division benefits from having two universities based in Lancaster; Lancaster University and the University of Cumbria. Students from the universities play an important part in the running of units throughout Lancaster; in fact many units would not exist if it were not for students. The Universities themselves also share an active Scout and Guide association (SSAGO), which runs weekly activities during term time.

The Division has access to two Campsites/activity centres; Silver Sapling at Silverdale and Guy’s Farm at Bay Horse. These provide units with plenty of opportunity for residential events and fun activity days or evenings.

There is a warm guiding welcome for anyone wishing to join our Division.
