Hornby Scouts


Scouting is growing and more children than ever before want a chance

to take part in the fun and adventure we offer. Take a look at what we we do!

Here in Hornby, we have a thriving Cub Scout Pack for children aged

8 – 10½ years who have the chance to try new activities, earn lots of

badges, take part in competitions and even go on camps and trips.

We are now looking to offer Scouting to even more children from Hornby and the

surrounding area by starting a Beaver Scout Colony for the younger ones; and re-opening

Scouts for the older ones. All our sections will meet at Hornby St Margaret’s Primary


BEAVER SCOUTS – Opens Friday, 7th February 2014

Boys and girls aged 5¾ - 8 years are welcome to come along,

have fun, make new friends and take part in lots of exciting

activities at our new Beaver Scout Colony. If you would like your

child to learn new skills, make things, play games, earn badges

and take part in trips or even a sleepover, then get in touch and

register their details. Beavers will meet on a Friday evening from 6pm – 7pm during term


SCOUTS – Re-opens Wednesday, 5th February 2014

We’d like young people aged 10½ - 14 years to join us and try

new challenges, have new adventures, take part in a variety of

activities from abseiling to zorbing, achieve awards and develop

simple skills from craft to first aid, map reading to teamwork. If

your son or daughter is interested, the get in touch and register

their details. Scouts will meet on a Wednesday evening from 7pm – 8.30pm during term



Scouting offers a wide range of opportunities and experiences for young people, but it’s

about fun and friendship for adults too. Our volunteers give as much time as they choose

and you can fit volunteering around your work and family commitments. To help us grow

the exciting opportunities we offer, we are looking for enthusiastic new adults to take on a

variety of roles.

Maybe you fancy leading the adventure for the young people and helping provide the

weekly activities. We need adults to work with our experienced team in Beavers and

Scouts, no experience is necessary and lots of support will be given. Or perhaps you can

support us in the background with admin, finance, communications or fundraising as part

of our committee. No regular weekly commitment is needed, just 4 – 6 meetings a year

and you can help from home in a way that suits you.

If you know someone aged 18 years + who would be interested in lending a hand, then ask

them to get in touch to find out more.

We will also welcome young people aged 14 – 18 years to work with us a Young Leader or

as part of their D of E Award scheme.


To register your child’s interest for one of our new sections or to have a chat about being

involved as an adult or young leader, then contact: Barbara Hughes on 07827 344135
