Information for the Scout
Being a Scout means that you join the Scout Movement by making a Promise. You will wear a uniform, which includes a Group scarf, and a set of badges. Scouts meet once a week with a programme of activities such as outings, swimming, camping, climbing, canoeing and working towards badges.
They also have meetings with other Scouts from other groups in the District as well as joint meetings with other sections within the group.
Each new Scout will be given a badge book which will explain the requirements of badges that can be earned while in the section.
Each scout troop consists of small units of six to eight scouts called a patrol, usually led by a patrol leader. Outdoor activities feature prominently in the scout troop, with the highlights being hiking and camping. Throughout the year, scouts learn various skills, such as map reading, camp cooking and first aid in preparation for camp. In addition to a lively and varied programme week to week, our units take part in lots of district events, from hiking competitions to cooking challenges.
On My Honour, I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people
And to keep the Scout Law

Information for Scout parents
Scouts do not make their Promise until they have been in the Troop for a few weeks. Parents are invited to the Promise Ceremony for which the Scout will need to be in uniform, which consists of a Green shirt and Navy Blue Trousers. Uniform may be obtained from any Scout Shop outlet. The Group tee shirt is provided by the Scout section as part of the registration fee.
Scouting is open to young people of all major denominations, faiths and all who can make the Scout Promise.
The badges that the Scouts earn go on their uniform. Details of badges that can be earned can be found in the Scout badge book. Further details of badges can also be found on the national Scout website scouts.org.uk. The placement of the badges can be found here
