The Group has Beaver, Cub, and Scout sections:

Join Us Here

Beavers is the youngest Section of the Scout Movement. We provide activities for boys and girls between 6 and 8 years old. A group of Beaver Scouts is called a Colony, and each Colony can be split up into smaller groups called Lodges.

Beavers meet on Tuesdays 5pm to 6pm

Beavers have a Promise and Motto, but there is not a Beaver Scout Law. The concepts of the Scout Law should be presented to Beavers through games, storytelling and other informal devices.

The Beaver Scout Promise

I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.

The Beaver Scout Motto

Be prepared

The Cub Scout Section, known as a Pack, is between Beavers and Scouts and provides activities for boys and girls between 8 and 10 1/2 years old. Young people can join as young as 7 1/2 if they are mature enough or if they join at the same time as their friends. Moving up from Beavers early would be agreed between the Beaver and Cub Scout Leaders.


A Pack of Cub Scouts is organised into Sixes, with each Six named after a colour, and a Sixer and a Seconder in charge.

Cubs meet on Tuesdays 6.30pm to 8.00pm

Cub Scouts have a Promise, Law and Motto:

The Cub Scout Promise:

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 Cub Scout Law.

The Cub Scout Motto: 

Be Prepared

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½  years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs and provides a range of activities indoors and outdoors, going to camp at least twice a year. Over the course of four years the Troop will go to summer camp in Aboyne, Scotland, attend a Jamboree and go to two other week long camps elsewhere in the UK or overseas.

Scouts Meet Thursdays 7.30pm to 9.15pm 

Scouts also follow a Promise, Law and Motto:
