Welcome to the membership application page
We have 4 sections in Scouting

Scouts from 10½ to 14 years old
Explorers from 14 to 18 years old.
Please complete the contact form if you would like to apply to go on the waiting list.
There is often a waiting list for joining each section. To avoid disappointment, please let us have your details as soon as possible. We will contact you when a place becomes available.Please note: We are unable to add your child to the list before their 5th birthday.
Our waiting lists are growing rapidly so we have had to introduce a policy to decide how we allocate spaces as they become available.
On occasion, the number of people wanting to join the group in any section exceeds the number we can sensibly take on and still deliver high quality Scouting, so we need to run waiting lists.
With the need to manage these waiting lists and to enable the group to manage the peaks and troughs of children moving between the sections within the group the following waiting list policy has been agreed:
Spaces within the group will be allocated in the following order of priority to children:
1. Who are existing members moving between sections (this is implied)
2. Of current uniformed leaders and formal section assistants, including new adults joining the group in these roles.
Note: Parents coming into the group need to commit to taking up their role before their child is accepted
3. With siblings already in our scout group
4. Who are already in scouting and have moved from another area
5. All others
The group membership secretary will hold the records of all children who are on the groups waiting list and will regularly liaise with the leaders of all sections
