Information for New Starters!

To sign up young people for any of our sections please the relevant pages

Taster Sessions

So that the young person and yourself can get to meet other members and find out more about our scout group we invite the young person to come along for 4 taster sessions, for which we ask that you pay £10 towards the termly subscription fees whilst your child attends these taster sessions.  All taster sessions will commence at the start of a term or half term.  After the taster sessions have finished we ask that you make a decision to commit to joining our group by paying the balance of your child’s termly subscription fees and purchasing a uniform for the young person.

We will shortly be offering places for new starters to join us at our next intake.
New members will be given the opportunity to start the week commencing –  Monday 2nd September 2024

Subscription Fees

Before you come along for your first visit we ask that you pay £10.00 towards the termly subscription fees for your child and if you decide you are staying with the group, this amount will be deducted from the cost of the termly subscription fees.


Whilst the young person is taking part in their taster sessions we suggest that they come along to the weekly meetings in comfortable clothing suitable for both indoor and outdoor activities.  When they are ready to be invested details of where you can purchase uniform can be found on the noticeboard at the Scout Hall, inside your welcome booklet and on our Uniform page


Once the young person has completed the 4 taster sessions, paid the balance of the termly subscription fees and purchased a uniform we will arrange for the young person to be invested.  Family members are very welcome to come along to watch the investiture ceremony.  At the short investiture ceremony we will provide the young person with a Group neckerchief, a woggle and the relevant badges for their uniform.  Please look after these items carefully, as any lost items will need to be replaced at a small cost to yourself.  Can we also remind you that if you wish to take any photos at investiture that you must first make sure that you ask the section leaders if you can take photos and can we please ask that you respect other members privacy by not taking photos of any other members in the group or include them in any photos that you are taking of your son / daughter.
