‘Scouting has given me a fantastic opportunity to do lots of activities and things that people who are not in Scouts don’t get to do. It’s about having fun with good friends.’

Scouts are the third section of the Scouting movement. From the first experimental camp for 20 boys in 1907, the movement now has an estimated 28 million members worldwide, and in the UK alone there are over 499,000 boys and girls involved in Scouting. An increase in adult volunteers means that more and more young people are now able to take part in their own big adventure.

Scouts start at age 10 1/2


Group Scout Leader

Kerry joined us as an Assistant Scout Leader in the summer of 2010. Kerry's hobbies include walking and horse riding, all good healthy outdoor pursuits ideally suited to the Scouts. In her youth back in her home county of Derbyshire Kerry was an active member of her local Guide Group. As a secondary school teacher Kerry brings a great skill set that is ideally suited to the Scout section and being a geography teacher as well just makes it better. An avid fan of Sci Fi, both books and films, and particular all things Zombie Kerry fits in really well!


Scout Leader

Mel is our Scout Leader. Mel has been with the group over 5 years now. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious. Supported by Nathan, she runs the section for our 10 and a half to 14 year olds.
