The Scout section is for boys and girls between the ages of 10 ½ years and 14 years,. The older Scouts can choose to move onto Explorers at 14 years.
The Scouts meet once a week at the HQ site on a Wednesday evening from 7:30 to 9:00 pm. The Scouts are involved in a combination of games, badge work and training at their weekly meetings. Additional activities include a two week summer camp, a weekend winter camp, weekend camps organised by the more senior Scouts, as well as weekend training sessions.
There are four Patrols in the Troop: Amundsen, Drake, Scott and Columbus.
The Scout Troop is run by Dave with assistance from Mick, James and Eric.
Current Scout parents may contact the Scout leader:
If you are interested in joining the Scouts, please see our Joining Us page. Please do not contact the leader above, as he does not deal with membership enquiries. Thank you.

ICE Forms (2018) have been sent out to the Scouts (and may also be downloaded here). We need to ensure we can contact you if required. The form will act as the medical information form for all scouting activities. Please could everyone return these promptly.
It is essential that we have up to date health and contact information for each Scout. If you have any concerns please let the Scout Leaders know.

In order for scouts to progress through the challenges and awards programme in scouting they need to attend regularly, or as much as possible. We understand that many young people of scout age have other extra-curricular commitments and obviously education comes first.
If you are unable to attend an evening, we would appreciate you letting us know as soon as possible by email, text message or phone. If you decide for any reason you no longer wish to continue with scouting, please let us know as there are young people wishing to join the troop that we currently are unable to offer a space to. (Please see our Group's Attendance Expectations policy.)
