Scouting provides skills for life to young people aged 6-25yrs.  They are split into sections based on age: Beaver Scouts (6-8yr), Cub Scouts (8-10½ yr), Scouts (10½-14yrs), Explorer Scouts (14-18yr) and Scouts Network (18-25yr).

Adult Volunteers

Volunteers are pivotal to the running of our Scout Group.  These may include leaders, assistants, occasional helpers, parents, administrators, fundraisers and more.  A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to make every scout group a success.

You don’t have to be an adventurer like Bear Grylls to get involved with Scouting.  You may have many skills from your own youth or working life that you could pass on e.g. do you have first aid knowledge, are you good with numbers, do you love to cook or do DIY, do you love the great outdoors?  We all have useful skills and you can assist in many ways whilst having a lot of fun too.

If you would like to find out more about how you can get involved, even in a small way, please use the Contact Us link on the left.



Scouting exists to actively engage, encourage and support young people in their personal development, build their confidence and help them want to make a positive contribution to society. 


Our values are at the heart of who we are and what we do:

Integrity We’re honest, we try to do the right thing (even if no-one’s watching) and we stay true to ourselves.
Respect We’re thoughtful of people’s feelings and values, treating everyone as we’d like to be treated ourselves.
Care We’re kind to others, looking after the world we live in.
Belief We explore our beliefs and attitudes with wide-open minds.
Co-operation We work with others to change the world for the better, making friends along the way.


Scouting takes place when young people, in partnership with adults, work together using Scouting values to:

  • Enjoy all that they do whilst having fun;
  • Take part in activities both indoors and outdoors;
  • Learn by getting stuck in;
  • Share in spiritual reflection;
  • Take responsibility and have te confidence to make decisions;
  • Undertake new and challenging activities;
  • Make and live by their Scout Promise.



The Scouting Programme for all sections is based around three main themes:  Outdoor & adventure, world and skills.  In each section, a range of badges and awards support all aspects of Scouting, including the main themes of leadership, teamwork and personal development.  The Programme is delivered in a balanced way that incorporates elements from each theme, to offer young people the most interesting and diverse experience.
