Membership Policy

Membership is open to boys and girls irrespective of where they live. The Scout Group wishes to welcome as many young people as is possible, provided that they meet the eligibility criteria. This policy outlines how the Beaver Scout Colony. Cub Scout Pack and Scout Troop manage their membership arrangements. References are made to the Scout Association’s Policy, Organisation and Rules (POR).

Want To Join?

It has been decided to reopen the group joining list for two reasons,firstly to gauge "customer" demand and secondly to assess the adult resources needed to manage the number of young people. It should be noted that there will still be several months of waiting so patience is appreciated. Parents may also put their children names on their 4th birthday for possible entry to Beavers at 5 3/4."
