Important update regarding Coronavirus (Covid-19)

In line with the latest Government guidelines, the Scout Association has confirmed England's readiness level is now 'Amber'. We are pleased to confirm that this means face-to-face Scouting activities can resume, subject to social distancing guidelines being followed. We will communicate further with parents regarding these changes and cannot wait to welcome all of our Beavers back to the Scout Hut over the coming weeks!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our young people, parents and guardians for their continued enthusiasm and involvement over the last year.


Subs are currently £3.50 per week per child. If you have two or more children in the Group, subs are £3.50 per week for the first child and £2.00 per week for every additional child.

Space availability

Due to very high levels of interest, our Colony is currently full and we are not able to take any new Beavers into the Colony at this time. We are, however, operating a waiting list so please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like to be notified as soon as spaces become available!
