St James The Great Scout Group is open to Catholic children between the ages of 6-14.  It consist of three sections:
 


 

After reaching the age of 14, Scouts can progress to the next level, which is Explorer Scouts, and St James’ Scout Group has strong links with the Explorer Scout Unit, which also meets at St James’, although it is not formally integrated with the Group.
 
The sections all seek to assist their members to learn to make good use of their time, to enjoy their time as members of the world wide brotherhood of Scouting, learn general citizenship skills and to make new friends.  We are a uniformed organisation, and all members are required to equip themselves with a full uniform, appropriate to their section, and to wear it at meetings.  An annual subscription charge is made, part of which is used to fund the district and part to help the group buy new equipment.  (Special confidential facilities are available for any family that is unable to make the modest financial commitment needed for these items.)
 
As we are a sponsored Catholic pack, members of all sections are committed to attend the monthly church parade, which takes place at the 11.30am Mass on the second Sunday of each month.  Children wishing to enrol must be committed to attending these Masses with the group.
 
In this age, when young people suffer from much negative press, Scouting is a good way to have fun, with an emphasis on outdoor activities, good health and eating, and public service, as relevant and exciting today as it was 100 years ago.
 
For further information, please contact the leaders of the relevant sections.
