Young People aged 6-25 actively engaged in scouting in our District


Adults helping to support our young, and deliver Skills for Life to our young people.


Young people aged 6-18 on a waiting list, waiting for a space in their local scout group.


We'd need at least 18 new leaders to have a shorter waiting list.

We're Scouts and everyone's welcome here. All genders, races and backgrounds.

Every week we give almost half a million people aged 6-25 the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. 

'Scouts made me a do-er and a give it a go-er. Made me question and listen and have a wide-open mind. Scouts made me take a deep breath and speak up. Made me think on my feet, made me see the big picture, made me ignore the butterflies and go for it. Scouts made me get back up and try again. Made me think about what’s next, and plan for it. Made me jump in, get muddy, give back and get set."

Our Promise

I promise to do my best
To be kind and helpful
And to love God.


I promise that I will do my best
To do my duty to God and to the Queen
To help other people 
And to keep the Cub Scout Law.
On my honour,
I promise that I will do my best
to do my duty to God and to The Queen,
to help other people
and to keep the Scout Law.

This promise is made by all scouts, explorers and adults

Scouting is available to people of all faiths as well as people who are humanist, atheist or have no affirmed faith and therefore must therefore take 
account of the different religious obligations or non religious beliefs of its Members. There are alternative promises that can be made where necessary.
