Meeting Times

We meet every Thursday during term time. All Scouts should be fallen in on the main deck at 19:15 hrs, therefore the scouts should arrive before this time! We are there from 19:00 hrs so after that time would be great.
The meetings end at 21:15 hrs, then we will let the scouts out from the main deck where they can be collect by you. Please ensure that you are not late when picking up, as this can cause distress to your scout.

Our Vision

Scouts is all about fun, challenges and adventure.

We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.
Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment.
We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

Our Mission

What do Scouts do?

Scouts take part in activities as diverse as kayaking, abseiling, expeditions overseas, photography, climbing and zorbing. As a Scout you can learn survival skills, first aid, computer programming, or even how to fly a plane. There’s something for every young person. It’s a great way to have fun, make friends, get outdoors, express your creativity and experience the wider world.
