About us

About Us

Our aim is to promote the development of young people, so that they achieve their full potential. Scouting enables them to become responsible adults and members of their local, national and international communities.

The Scout Group is sectioned into Squirrels (4-6 years of age), Beavers (6 – 8 years of age), Cubs (8 – 10.5 years of age) and Scouts (10.5 – 14 years of age). Explorers, age 14 – 17 are arranged at District level, but a Unit meet in our H.Q.

We currently have two Squirrel Dreys, two Beaver Colonies, two Cub packs, two Scout Troops and one Explorer Unit.

Meetings are held weekly during school term time, with Squirrels on a Monday and Wednesday, Beavers and Cubs on Tuesdays or Thursdays, Scouts on Wednesdays or Fridays and Explorers on Mondays. Out of term time there are often camps and other activities.

We are glad to accept new applications for membership. Please refer to the join us page for more details and the form to lodge an initial enquiry about joining.

For further information about our Group please take a look at our Welcome Pack and look around this website for pages associated with particular sections.
