Since the group opened in January 2012 we've come a long way. Actually we've come an awfully long way! From having the cub and scout section when we started we now have a third section, ie the Venture Scouts which caters for boys and girls aged 15 - 17yrs. AND we've also got our very own Rover Scout who's 20! These extra six young people are an exciting development for us!

But that's old news. As these six young people have been working through our programme what's come to light is the fact that our young people are getting older and progressing through the programme as each year passes. An example of this is that in the last year the cub pack lost 9 members to the scout troop, almost decimating it! Likewise the scout troop lost 1 member to the venture scouts.

At heart each of our adult members is a big kid, the difference is that we're not afraid to let it show. Whether this is hanging around in a tree on a sponsored sit-out, or just getting together with fellow scouters at the end of year celebrations, we know how to have a laugh! Every man, woman and child can have the adventures that some only dream about. We foster the aim of self reliance, building confidence in ourselves and others. Why not consider joining us?
