We offer an exciting programme of Scouting activities for boys and girls aged 6 to 14 years old.

Young people can join the adventure in one of our five sections:

2nd @ Scouts District Swimming Gala
Friday, 11 July 2014 07:02

Congratulations to all our Scouts who took part and supported our swimmers at the Ware & District Scouts Swimming Gala on Thursday.

We had 24 Scouts down at Ware Lido which was a great turnout and 16 swimming in our team which was the maximum we could field. There were lots of races for all the girls and boys for different strokes and a relay and our Scouts did really well and came second in the competition just behind the Scout Team from 3rd Ware.

So congratulations to our great team and well done – "you were brilliant" said Scout Leader Neil.
