Welcome to the Scout Pages.
Scouts aims to build and develop young people’s confidence, sense of adventure and outdoor skills, as well as encouraging them to explore their beliefs and attitudes and be creative. It offers them the independence to put these skills into practice at camps and even on international trips.
Scouts are encouraged to work together and take the lead on all sorts of projects, from community based work to planning games and activities for their meetings.
The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. They can move to the next Section, Explorer Scouts, between the ages of 13½ and 14½.

Policy on walking to and home after Scouts.
We understand that there is a big difference between a 14 year old walking a short distance home in summer, to a 10 year old walking home in the dark winter months several miles.
Therefore we ask that Parents/Guardians are clear with their Children whether they can or cannot walk home. To assist with this we have created a consent form in OSM to inform us whether your child is allowed to travel to or from Scouts by themselves. By default we set this to permission to consent not given. Click here for the login to OSM. If you need your OSM login reset please let Nigel Vosper or Elspeth Ringrose know.
Please note that the Scout Association can take no accountability for travel from/ to meetings however our leaders and helpers will obviously stay with any youngster if there is a parent/guardian who is late in collection.
