Both Scout Troops are currently completely full; there are over 65 Scouts across the two Troops. We have to admit existing Cubs first, and even after that there is a long list of young people who want to join in the future.

The only way you can guarantee that your youngster will get in, is to become a Scouter yourself for a number of years, or other offer of assistance involving a reasonably serious level of commitment.

Parental willingness to undergo a DBS check, and being willing and able to assist on an ad hoc or rota basis around once per term does not count: that is the least we expect and is a minimum condition of membership.

The two Troops have broadly similar programmes, and their residential activities and camps are held in common – both Troops go to camp together.Several siblings go to different nights, and nearly all the Scouts know one another through school in any case.

The Scout Troop is the third section in the scouting family, and is typically seen as the original section.  Young people can join The Scout Troop between 10 -14.5 years old.
