Since 1925, we have been running a group delivering fantastic scouting experiences, opportunities and skills for our young members - helping them to stand out from the rest of their peers. Our Group is affiliated to the UK Scout Association and is part of Maidenhead District in Berkshire; it is also a registered charity. We are open to anyone aged 6 or over catering for boys & girls of all abilities. The group is totally run by unpaid volunteers and each Section — Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts and Scouts — is run by a section leader. Each section is coordinated by the Group Scout Leader who acts as the ‘manager’ of the Group.
Beaver Scout Leader (BSL) Cub Scout Leader (CSL) Scout Leader (SL) Assistant Leaders (ABSL, ACSL, ASL)
Each of the Sections has a team of leaders whose responsibility it is to deliver the programme and training for the young people. Leaders have the opportunity to undertake a modular training scheme which gives them the skills to carry out their role. They have a key role in planning and running activities.
Adults who may not wish to be uniformed leaders but who can undergo some of the same training and be just as valuable to the team of adults. A regular commitment is not essential, but always welcome. Uniform is optional for this role.
Provided an adult has completed a DBS check they can assist on an informal ad-hoc basis as a parent helper.
The Group Executive exists to support the Group Scout Leader and is responsible for; fundraising, finances, administration, acting as trustees, public relations, and other vital support work.
The Scout Group holds an Annual General Meeting, from which the members of the Group Executive Committee are elected. This Committee, coordinated by the Group Chairman, is responsible for the administration of the Group.
The Explorer Section is run by a Section Leader but unlike the other sections is coordinated by the District Explorer Scout Leader who is in charge of all Explorer Units across the district.
