Scouts

For boys and girls aged between around 10½ / 11 and 14 years old.

Our scout Troop meets on Fridays from 1930 to 2130

Our Scout Troop is run by Ian Drummond, who is assisted by Peter Griffith and Andy Normington.

The Scout Troop is based upon the ‘Patrol system’ which encourages leadership and responsibility. This involves small groups of young people working, learning and playing together in a patrol; led by someone of a similar age, and supported and guided by a team of highly trained adults.
They have a very full programme of activities such as: Caving, Cycling, Sailing, Wall Climbing, Abseiling, Air Rifle shooting, Archery, Mountain Walking, Camping and travelling abroad. They also have the opportunity to be involved in many District and County run events, such as camp cooking, night hikes and various training courses.

The Scout Promise

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

The Scout Law

  • A Scout is to be trusted.
  • A Scout is loyal.
  • A Scout is friendly and considerate.
  • A Scout belongs to the worldwide family of Scouts.
  • A Scout has courage in all difficulties.

Badges

Scouts can achieve a large and varied range of challenge & activity badges that cater for every taste, skill and capability. There are also core badges for joining or moving on from the Troop, or for time spent in the Scouting movement. Check out our Badges page for more details.

The progressive training scheme leads to the Chief Scout’s Gold Award in this section.

The ultimate goal for all Scouts is to achieve their Queen’s Scout Award – the highest and most difficult award and one that carries numerous benefits and is recognised by employers to have the same status as many professional qualifications.

Badge Positions

Subs

Scouting is a charity and all our leaders and helpers are unpaid volunteers. However, we do need to charge subscriptions to cover the cost of running the group but we keep these as low as we possibly can. Details of current rates can be found here.

We also charge a one-off fee payable when the Beaver is formally invested into the Group. This helps to cover the cost of the necker and woggle provided and any badges earned throughout your child’s time in the Group.

Joining us

Our group is well attended and sometimes there will be a waiting list. To make an enquiry about places, please email our Beaver Leader at scouts@16hw-scouts.org.uk

More membership information can be found on our Join Us page.
