BackBeavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers

The 'Twenty Ninth' Scouts are a mixed group for boys and girls covering all four section  age groups within the Scouting Movement:

Section Age Groups

Beavers for those aged 6-8
Cubs for those aged 8 to 10 and a half
Scouts for those aged 10 to 14 and a half
Explorers for those aged 14 and a half to 18

We are the UK's biggest mixed youth organisation. We change lives by offering 6- to 25-year-olds fun and challenging activities, unique experiences, everyday adventure and the chance to help others so that we make a positive impact in communities.

Scouts helps children and young adults reach their full potential. Scouts 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.

The Group meets at the Scout Hut in Brickfield Road, as follows:

Section Meeting Times

Beavers on Wednesdays from 6.00pm to 7.30pm
Cubs on Tuesdays from 6.30 to 8.00pm
Scouts on Fridays from 7.15 to 9.00pm
Explorers on Wednesday from 7.45pm to 9.30pm


The cost is currently £60 per year for one child or £90 for a family of two.
