Beavers are 6 – 8 year olds and meet Tuesday nights during term time from 6:15pm to 7:15pm
Cubs are 8 – 10.5 year olds and meet Tuesday nights during term time from 7:15pm to 8:30pm
Volunteers are welcome to work with just one or both of these groups. (Usually people take on just one role)
We are looking for volunteers to work with existing leaders to run games and activities for young people. No previous experience is required, but volunteers must want to work with children.

Organisation aims and objectives

Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills. We aim to help young people reach their full potential as active members of the community who are self-reliant, caring, responsible and committed. Along the way we provide opportunities for adventure, fun and challenge. Scouting is open to all young people, girls and boys, aged 6 to 25 of every faith and background. There are also plenty of opportunities for adults to become involved as Leaders, Assistants or Administrators.
