Our Group

Our Scouts meets on a Thursday evening from 7:00 - 8:30 pm and takes part in a wide and varied series of activities.


Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative.  It  offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips. 

Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings. 

The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs. The Scout Section is for young people aged between 10½ and 14 years.  


Our Scout Troop is divided into small groups called Patrols, each headed up by an older Scout called a Patrol Leader, and an Assistant Patrol Leader. This allows Scouts some additional responsibility and understanding of their roles within.


Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme including traditional Scouting skills, such as camping, survival and cooking, as well as a wider spectrum of adventurous activities, from abseiling to zorbing. Participation rather than meeting set standards is the key approach, and there are a number of Challenges awards and activity badges that Scouts can gain during their time in the section to recognise their achievements. We aim to get all Scouts their Gold Chief Scouts Award which is the highest award for a Scout.
