The scout section is all about earning badges through by taking part in exciting activities that both challenge and educate whilst being great fun. The scouts meet weekly but also take part in extra activities and camps at some weekends. Typical regular camps and activities we take part in are:

  • District camp.
  • The Dave Smart Challenge.
  • Climbing camp.
  • Splash camp.
  • Family camp.
  • Winter camp.
  • Patrol camp.
  • Shooting (.177 air rifles)

  • Climbing & abseiling.
  • Canoeing & kayaking.

Meeting Time

Scouts meet on Wednesday evenings from 7.00pm until 9.00pm.

Costs

Our group is sponsored by St. Peters Catholic Church who most generously provide us with our meeting room each week free of charge.  This enables us to help keep our subscription costs lower.  We do ask all members of the group to help acknowledge this by attending occasional church parades as our way of saying thank you to the church; nearly all other groups have to pay for meeting room hire.
