Going for Gold!

Each section follows a two year programme. The overall objective is to provide the opportunity for every Beaver, Cub and Scout to obtain the Chief Scouts Award (Bronze, Silver or Gold) which is the highest award that can be obtained for their section.

Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme

We are currently designing a programme for the new Explorer Unit. The core programme will mirror the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme with additional Scoutcraft skills leading to the coveted Chief Scout's Platinum Award, Chief Scout's Diamond Award and Queen's Scout Award.

Typical Activities

Here is a summary of what our members get up to:

 Beavers

 Cubs

 Scouts

 Explorers

 Age 6 to 8
 Age 8 to 10½ Age 10½ to 14
 Age 14 to 18
Sundays 10 - 11.30 am

Beaver Scouts play games, as well as making and doing. They can earn a limited range of badges which need some effort appropriate to their age range. They are offered a more secure environment than the other stages.
Sundays 10 - 11.30 am

Cub Scouts play games. A wider range of skills and activities are offered. In order to gain badges, more effort is required and some badges can only be gained through pursuit of a subject over several weeks or perhaps a whole term. They undertake more adventurous activities, including nights away, ½ day hikes and activity trips. Cubs are expected to be more aware of the world around them including issues such as world faiths and the environment.
Fridays 8 - 9.30 pm

Scouts are expected to take part in a full range of indoor and outdoor activities. As well as participating, they are expected to take the lead in organising themselves and being responsible citizens. The range of activities are broadened to reflect these new responsibilities and they are expected to stretch themselves by suitable challenges - particularly in outdoor pursuits such as backwoods camping and night hikes. Scouts are allocated to patrols, with the older Scouts being patrol leaders, responsible for their patrol members.


We have recently acquired permission to establish an Explorer Unit. Explorers are given full support to pursue the Duke of Edinburgh award programme and to obtain the highest award in Scouting - The Queen's Scout Award.
