The Scout Group is thriving and places for young people in each section are in high demand.  We’re the largest Scout Group in the local area, by some margin, but despite this we can’t find a place for everyone who’d like to join.  We know that will be disappointing for those who don’t get to be part of the fun and we’re sorry for that.  We’d like nothing more than to be able to provide a place for everyone, but practical considerations – physical space, available nights of the week and levels of adult leadership – prevent it.

The best chance of securing a place is to ensure your child’s details are recorded with us really early.  Currently, those registering for a place when their child is age 3 or below can be sure of securing a place.  If your child is already 4 years or older, we will not be able provide a place for them and advise you to contact other local Scout groups.

To add your young child’s name to the Beaver waiting list, please contact Sarah Ball, Beaver Scout Leader through the Joining enquiry page.  We’re sorry, but if they’ve already 4 or older, we’d advise you to contact another local Scout Group to enquire about places.  You are more likely be successful elsewhere.  We no longer take new entries onto waiting lists for Cubs or Sea Scouts as our forward planning indicates there is no chance of there being places available.
