  • Scout uniform can be purchased from the Scout Shop on Newton Road, Urmston. It is open every Saturday from 10am to 12.30pm. All profits from the shop directly benefitour District and so it is important we use it whenever possible rather than on-line.

  • Please remember to ensure the scouts always bring a coat, small torch and a spare pair of shoes/boots to wear outside to prevent too much mud coming inside.

  • Training on Troop Nights will be run on a split basis  alternating between Group A and Group B. Regular attendance is essential. When not a Training Night the group will take part in fun scouting games.

  • Group B – Merlins, Woodpeckers, Ravens, Owls, Kingfishers.

  • If a Scout misses meetings for 4 weeks in a row without contacting me, I will assume they have left and their place will be offered to our waiting list.
  •  If you need to contact me or if you are not receiving my regular e-mails then e-mail me and I’ll add you to the circulation list. Our e-mail is:

    As part of the behaviour contact, scout leaders will adopt a “yellow and red card” disciplinary system. Any red card issued will result in the scout not being allowed to attend the next weekly meeting. A red card can be issued in 3 different ways:

    • Serious incident leading to a straight red card
    • 2 yellow cards being issued in a single night

Collating 3 yellow cards over a 5 week period

  • What Have We Been Up

  • We had a Sponsored Night Hike up Rivington Pike to raise money for The Bone Cancer Reserch Trust, it was a cold, wet and windy night but it was all for a good cause, we even had a sing song on the top! We shone our tourches up to the sky to make a beacon of light to remember our good friend Jude who sadly lost his battle with Bone Cancer.
