Welcome everyone..

...to the website for the parents of our Beavers, Cubs and Scouts.

Scouting is all about fun, challenges and adventure. Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouting develop skills including teamwork, time management, leadership, initiative, planning, communication, self-motivation, cultural awareness and commitment. We help young people to get jobs, save lives and even change the world.

Adventure is at the heart of everything we do. It is the single most important thing that sets Scouts apart. Every young person in Scouting enjoys a balanced programme of activities, events and experiences. Activities are an integral part of Scouting. But as well as being challenging physically, our activities help young people set and achieve goals and grow in confidence.

“Sheaf District Scout Swimming - 15 May 2021

Scout swimming is back!  We held our first session for 13 months on 2nd May.  We are holding a four week Challenge course to bed in our new systems.  We are planning to hold another course before the Summer break which will run for six weeks from Sunday 6th June to Sunday 11th July.  We have not yet decided what course to run, but it is unlikely to be Rookie because of Scout Association distancing rules.  If you are interested and are not on our mailing list you can register interest by emailing me on barrie.hocking@virgin.net

When I became Chief Scout in 2009, it was one of the proudest moments of my life.

With every passing day since, I've become even more inspired by the dedication of our leaders and volunteers, who tirelessly prepare young people with skills for life.
