We are a thriving Scout Group with a Beaver Scout Colony for boys and girls aged 6 to 8, a Cub Scout Pack for boys and girls aged 8 to 10.5, and a Scout Troop for boys and girls aged 10.5 to 14. The three sections are supported by a team of adult leaders and some Young Leaders (Explorer Scouts aged 14 to 18).

Cubs meet each Wednesday from 6.30pm to 8.00pm
