Tangmere Scout Group


Our plans for a new Scout Group

We’re making plans to launch a new Scout Group for Tangmere and nearby villages.

We know demand is high for our other scout groups and that the Tangmere community deserves its own (local) group.

At this stage the plans are flexible and you can help us shape the way forward. We’ll open the sections that have the most demand and volunteers for first. Our sections:

– Squirrels – 4 to 6 year olds

– Beavers – 6 to 8 year olds

– Cubs – 8 to 10.5 year olds

– Scouts – 10.5 to 14 year olds

*Section meeting days and times are to be decided, subject to hall availability.

We’re open to ALL! Boys and girls, and people from all backgrounds. We’ll have opportunities for 14 to 18 year olds to volunteer as young leaders and a range of ways for adults to lend a hand. Whether you prefer being hands on or behind the scenes, we’d love to have you involved.
