Our Scout Troop take boys and girls from the age of 10 ½ to 14. The Scouts meet on Friday evenings, 7pm - 8.30pm, Weekly Subs are £2.  Their uniform is a Teal coloured shirt, navy trousers and our Group Kneckerchief.

 

What don’t Scouts do? At this age, we encourage girls and boys to take responsibility for themselves and each other, with older members leading a small team. They like being with friends and participating fully in the adventure of life. In the Troop Scouts: 

 

Develop leadership skills

Learn emergency aid

Spend nights away - the summer camp is often the highlight of the year

Help others in the community

Cook, both at home and at camp

Adventurous and sporting activities - anything from abseiling to zorbing

Learn survival skills
