We have over 180 children who use 1st Place (our Scout Hut) every week in term-time. Our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts enjoy a varied programme of adventurous activities in a safe and fun environment. 1st Place is in Harestock. Most of our Young People live in the Harestock & Weeke areas. We do have some girls and boys from further afield. The Scout Hut was rebuilt in 2014 to maximise enjoyment and safety for our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts. It is also available for community users.

Adults have fun too! Join as one of our Leaders. Help out some evenings, or support the admin behind the scenes. There is plenty to do! With so many Young People, we have a constant need for new leaders and helpers. With plenty of experienced leaders we pass on the knowledge to new adult helpers. In addition to weekly term-time meetings, we have a full programme of camps - from sleepovers, to weeks-away camping in great parts of the UK. If you wish your children to have a fantastic adventure in scouting and you’d like to join in, do volunteer!

How to use these numbers: Focus on the Vacancies number. Then look to the Joining List number (those of joining age for that section registered ahead of you). It is better to APPLY to Scout Groups with high Vacancies and low Joining Lists. Use the Scout Group locator on the left to find the Groups closest to you by area. When you find the Group that best fits your needs, click the blue APPLY HERE icon to make your Registration of Interest (above left). Improve your chances of an offer by volunteering as a parent for an adult role. Some Groups may require this.

The closest Groups are the 13th & 16th (click on their neckers below).
