What We Do

Houghton-le-Spring Scout District (part of Durham Scout County) provides support to seven scout groups in the Hetton, Houghton and Washington areas of the City of Sunderland.

Scout groups at Eppleton, Houghton, Herrington, Fatfield, Lambton, North Washington, West Washington and Washington Village along with our District Young Leader Unit, make up over 900 members, including over 100 adult volunteers.

Growing Scouting

The district has grown significantly over the last decade and is managed by an enthusiastic group of trustees who form its executive and have embarked on an ambitious development plan.

The demand from young people and families to join continues to grow. We continue to recruit new adults to lead adventure for even more young people.
