The Scout Group is currently made up of two sections: Beavers aged 6-8 and Cubs aged 8-10½.  All sections meet at the Scout Hut in Westfield.  For further information contact Frances Richardson on 01424 754548 or Rosemary Bond on 01424 754080. Unfortunately we have had to close our Scout troop for ages 10½-14 due to lack of a Scout leader. If you would like to consider taking on the role of leading the Scout troop contact Frances or Rosemary.

We are an active group and each section has a varied programme, including many different indoor and outdoor activities, which follow the Scout Association’s balanced programme. We also have one-day activities and camps at weekends or during school holidays.

beavers smallBeavers are aged between 6 and 8 and meet on Tuesdays from 5-6pm during term time. In the Summer months the Beavers spend a lot of time outside, they go on hikes, have treasure hunts, explore nature, play games and much more. When it is dark outside the Beavers can be found in the Scout hut making things, doing cooking, painting, learning about things like first aid and safety and playing games. They join in lots of activities organised by the Scout District or County which include things like crazy golf tournaments and activity days at Broadstone Warren Scout camp site.

2012 cub hike smallCubs meets on a Monday evening from 6:30-8:00pm during term time at the Scout Hut in Westfield. We do a wide range of activities both indoors and outdoors, some favourite activities are cooking, over an open fire or inside, craft activities, hikes, games and our annual Christmas Pantomime. We take part in lots of District activities and have recently done very well, winning the last Football Tournament and Interpack Challenge, and coming second in the Swimming Gala. We go camping at least twice a year, sometimes more, and have opportunities for activities such as archery, canoeing, climbing, driving go-karts, as well as wide games and camp fires.
