What Do Scouts Do?

Scouts are do-ers and give-it-a-go-ers. Yes, we go camping, hiking, swimming, abseiling, cycling and canoeing. But we also get to hang out with our friends every week –  having fun, playing games, working in a team and taking on new challenges.

Every week we give almost 100 4-25 year olds the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life.

Everyone’s welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds. Regardless of your child’s physical ability – there’s a Scout adventure out there waiting for them. And we’ll help them find it.

Join to help your child discover their ‘thing’: from abseiling to coding to performance art and everything in between.

The Group Trustees play a vital role in the running of a Scout Group. Trustees make decisions and carry out administrative tasks to ensure that the best quality Scouting can be delivered to young people in the Group.

The Team Leaders and their teams maintain an overview of the Balanced Programme, Awards and Badges appropriate to the Sectional age groups with which they are working; ensuring the programme takes account of these and the different methods appropriate to each age group.
