Dive right in and embrace the mess. Scouts pay no mind to the fluttering butterflies; they dive headfirst into the challenge, and soon you'll do the same.

The Scouts convene every Friday from 7:30pm to 9:00 pm, offering a platform for young boys and girls aged between 10½ to 14 to cultivate leadership skills and acquire lifelong competencies. Our regular gatherings during term time predominantly occur in our hall, although we diversify our schedule by organizing outings to nearby locales like parks, campsites, and activity centers. In addition to our weekly meetings, Scouts can engage in district-wide events encompassing activities such as cooking, orienteering, and expedition challenges, alongside local camping experiences and international jamborees.

if you have any questions or would like to join the troop, get in touch below.

Scout Promise

All Scouts and Leaders make the promise when they are invested, and renew it yearly (usually during our St George’s Day parade)

On my honour,
I promise to do my best,
To do my duty to God and to the King,
To help other people,
And to keep the Scout Law

Variations of the promise for different faiths can be found here.

Scout Law

Our Scout law is a set of values that all members of The Scout Assosciation abide by. 

1. A Scout is to be trusted
2. A Scout is loyal
3. A Scout is friendly and considerate
4. A Scout belongs to the world-wide family of Scouts
5. A Scout has courage in all difficulties
6. A Scout makes good use of time and is careful of possessions and property
7. A Scout has self-respect and respect for others

In Scouts we have eight patrols that engage in weekly competitions during meetings to earn points over the course of the year. These points are then tallied, leading up to our annual awards ceremony where the patrol with the highest tally receives a prize. Each patrol is led by a senior Scout known as a Patrol Leader, who is supported in their leadership role by an Assistant Patrol Leader.


What We Wear

Shirt / Blouse
Green, with badges sewn on to show off all your Scouting achievements

Group Scarf
Ours is Red and Yellow with our Duck badge on the back to show you’re a proud member of our group

Made of leather or wood and stops the scarf falling off (Tie a knot in your scarf if outside so you don’t lose it)

Smart Trouser/Skirt and Shoes
For parades and some other events, we like our Scouts to look smart in school trousers/skirt with a pair of preferably black shoes

Where To Buy Uniform

Uniform can be bought online on a number of websites, some of our favourites (with links) are below.

Throughout your time as a Scout, our young people work towards a number of badges. These badges are sewn onto the Scout uniform to showcase the skills they have learnt. 

We have 3 main types of badges:

Activity Badges
From Air Researcher to Writer, activity badges are earned for taking part in meetings over the term

Staged Activity Badges
Staged activity badges cover skills that you will develop over your time as a Squirrel, Beaver, Cub, and Scout. From Nights Away to Swimming, these badges have a small number on them so you can see your progress

Challenge Badges
Challenge badges are usually completed over a number of weeks/months. Earning all of the challenge badges will award the Chief Scout’s Gold Award, the highest award a Scout can earn.

If you are stuck with where to sew a badge, speak to a Scout leader at your next meeting.

Eventually, the time will come to transition from Scouts and embrace the exciting challenge of becoming an Explorer Scout or a Young Leader.
