Scouting is popular and at the moment we have limited spaces available for Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. This is largely due to the limited availability of adult volunteers to support our Scout Groups.

At the moment we have places available as follows (click on the Group name to find out more about meeting days and times, meeting locations and to contact the Group):
