Mondays 5:45 - 6:45
Beaver Scouts are the youngest section usually aged between six and eight years of age. Young people can join Beavers in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday.
Typical activities can include playing games, making friends, going on visits and helping others. Through participating in these activities, badges are awarded. Beavers meet once a week at All Saints' Church hall, Western Road.
Beaver Promise: I promise to do my best, to be kind and helpful, and to love God.
Beavers Motto: Be Prepared!
Beavers Prayer: A beaver should care, a beaver should share, teach us Jesus to love and care and share.
Mondays 7 - 8:15
Cubs are usually aged between 8 - 10.5 years. There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout. You will get a chance to try lots of lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.
Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.
Cubs Promise: I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to God and to the Queen, to help other people, and to keep the Cub Scout Law.
Cub Motto: Be Prepared!
Cub Law: Cub Scouts always do their best, think of others before themselves, and do a good turn every day.
Below you'll find our up to date schedule.
Welcome to the adventure as a parent or guardian of a child in Scouting, we would like to welcome you to the Scouting family. We know that you play a big part in your child's involvement in Scouting, through both practical support and encouragement. We would therefore like to say a big thank you for all you do and hope that the following information is useful to you.
Adults in Scouting One of the biggest myths about Scouting is that Groups are closing down due to a lack of young people wanting to become Members. Nothing could be further from the truth, in fact, Scouting in the UK is growing. We're always looking for adults to help supporting Scouting.
Adults in Scouting Adults in Scouting are from all walks of life. Yet the one thing they share is the enjoyment of helping young people reach their potential. Everyone has something to give. You may feel that you have no skills to offer Scouting - but everyone as something to give. Doing things such as making squash and organising games means the Leader has more time to spend with the young people.
Do you have any hobbies and interests that you could share? For example, are you a qualified First Aider who could run an interactive session or do you have an interest in nature and could take a group on a fun walk through the local woods? If you don't have time in the evenings when groups meet, could you use your work skills to help out? Perhaps you could take a group of young people to your place of work, such as a police station or garden centre? If you'd like to help out, please contact a leader or fill in our contact form by clicking here.
"I enjoy being a volunteer because I get to make new friends & have fun at the same time"
"It's great to be able to help out & see my child having so much fun & learning more!"
What our volunteers say...
◦ None of our Leaders are paid - they are all volunteers.
◦ The majority of our Leaders have full time jobs and a family
◦ 44% of our Leaders are female.
◦ Leaders get involved because they want to have fun and make new friends themselves.
◦ Leaders don't have to be 'superheroes' who know everything. They are given training on the job and learn new skills as they go along.
◦ Whilst all our volunteers are passionate about what they do, many help out on a flexible basis due to other commitments. Some may help out once a week or fortnight whereas others help once a term or at summer camp.
◦ 27% of volunteers help out in Scouting as they are a parent of a current Member. May were not Scouts when they were young but have learnt new skills and made new friends through Scouting.
