It is relatively young, we have been running for 25 years – since 1994, with 2 Beaver colonies, a Cub pack and a Scout troop. We also have close links with the Free Spirit Explorer unit, which is where most of the scouts go when they leave us (although some return as Young Leaders).

We seek to follow closely the fundamental purpose of scouting, i.e. to actively engage and support young people in their personal development, empowering them to make a positive contribution to society.

Put your phone down and what are you left with? Just teamwork, courage and the skills to succeed.’
