South East

Suffolk Guiding in the South East is a very scattered, rural division covering a wide area around Ipswich. It includes Dedham vale where John Constable painted his lovely pictures, Alton water, which is a good boating and walking facility and Suffolk ski slopes are on the edge of the division at Wherstead. Also there are many footpaths across open farmland which can be used for a summer evening unit activity.

South East Suffolk is probably one of the smallest divisions in the county, comprising of 3 districts; Bramford, Bosmere (covers the area from Bramford across to Claydon and Witnesham) and Babergh which incorporates East Bergholt, Copdock and Capel St Mary; and Samford, which stretches from the Shotley penninsular across to Brantham on the Suffolk Essex border.

All districts have Rainbow, Brownie and Guide sections, but sadly there are no Ranger sections in the division at present.
