As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Baden Powell once famously said “The most worthwhile thing is to try and put happiness into the lives of others” and to us, happiness is Scouting.
St. Paul's is lucky to have a thriving active Scouting Movement, which is testament to the leadership team they have in place and are actively developing, however they are always on the look out for additional Leaders/Volunteers to assist with the running of the groups.
If this is of interest then please contact Robyn Watson on 01274 817574 or via the Scouts Contact page all help is greatfully welcomed regardless of how big or small.
24th St. Pauls Beavers
The Beavers section is for boys and girls aged 6 – 8 years.
Our Beavers start their Scout journey here, learning the basic beliefs and commitments required to thrive in the scouting world and preparing themselves for the day they move up to Cubs. During their sessions they work towards a whole variety of badges specially dedicated to their age groups and skill sets, some key focus areas are on social awareness, environment, self development and teamwork.
The Beavers meet on a Wednesday evening between 6.15pm and 7.15pm (term time)
