Scouting has become increasingly popular over the last few years. This has resulted in the introduction of a waiting list, to ensure all children are given a fair opportunity to join.
Unfortunately we cannot guarantee when your child will be enrolled, but we will make contact as soon as a space is available - there is no need to contact us after your child has been added to the waiting list.
If you're uncertain about Scouting, you can always pop in and watch. You can arrange for your child to take part too.
However we do ask that you arrange this at least two weeks in advance.
To do so, you can either email us or call our GSL: Naveed Rahman - 07968 486019
Scouting is an affordable way of providing a range of exciting and adventurous activities for your child.
The Membership Fee is £60.00⚹. You can pay this upfront or £10 a month for 6 months. £48 of the £60, is paid to the Scout Association for membership and insurance. The remaining £12 covers the cost of sessions.
Please note: Trips, camps and activities are not covered by the Membership Fee.
Our Leaders, assistants and Executive Committee are not paid for their time.
Young people wear a uniform that includes a sweatshirt or shirt depending on the age range. They will also wear our group's custom scarf/neckerchief (optionally held together with a woggle). Young people are not required to wear uniform from the beginning, but the Section Leader will agree upon a time when it is suitable to purchase a uniform.
Our neckerchief can only be purchased from our group, at the cost price of £7.50 (+£1.00 per woggle) - please speak to your section leader. You can buy your sweatshirt/shirt from YC Sports on Crwys Road or from Amazon - Beavers, Cubs, Scouts (Boys) | Scouts (Girls)⚹.
⚹ - We don’t want young people to miss out through financial hardship. If concerns about finances may prevent your child taking part in Scouting or some activities, please speak to our GSL: Naveed Rahman - 07968 486019 or your section leader, as some assistance may be available in confidence.
