The Coming Scout Year

Hawkhirst Adventure Weekend

  • We are taking the whole group to Hawkhirst, with Beavers visiting for an action packed day for the first time.  Cubs and scouts will again take part in a number of different activities

We do listen to what our young people want to do

  • Our Christmas Party 2017 will be a Bounce Off at AirBox in Cramlington.

Also back by popular demand

  • Family camp which gives parents a chance to stay under canvas and get involved with the children in a range of Scouting activities.



Working In The Community


We will be continuing to work with Holystone Primary School developing the conservation area of the school fields. 

Last year we created a fire pit which has been well used by both the group and the children of the school and added colour up the playground planters.

This year the plan is to 

  • developing the pond area,
  • creating a wildflower area with bug hotels 
  • and planting fruit trees.

We will also be adding lots of colour to the playground planters for over the Autumn and Winter months.

Lots of the young people attend the school and are excited to be doing something for their school community.
