Welcome to the Fairmilehead Scout Group (known in Scouting terms as the 114th Braid Scout Group).

In Scouting we offer fun, friendship and adventure to young people in five sections according to age. There is an emphasis on outdoor activities throughout. The older sections take increasing responsibility for the running of their programme.

Scouting is run by adult volunteers.


Belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family. Young people can join Beaver Scouts in the three months leading up to their sixth birthday.

Easily recognised by their distinctive turquoise sweatshirts, Beaver Scouts enjoy making friends, playing games, going on visits and helping others. They usually meet together once a week in a Beaver Scout Colony.

Some Beaver Scout Colonies also organise Sleepovers. These are often the first time a young person spends a night away from home. They take place in suitable buildings, often Scout centres.

Day: Monday
Time: 6:00pm - 7:00pm
Age: 6 - 8 years


There are loads of fun things that you can do as a Cub Scout.

You will get a chance to try lots of different activities like swimming, music, exploring, computing and collecting. If you do them properly you will get a badge which you can wear on your uniform.

Cub Scouts also get to go on trips and days out, to places like the zoo, theme parks or a farm. Sometimes you will be able to go camping with the rest of your Pack. This will mean you sleeping in a tent and doing loads of outdoor activities.

Day: Thursday
Time: 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Ages 8 - 10.5 years


Scouts take part in a Balanced Programme that helps them to find out about the world in which they live, encourages them to know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and helps develop their creative talents.

It also provides opportunities to explore their own values and personal attitudes Scouts are encouraged to take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme. The emphasis is on taking part and there are a number of badges and awards Scouts can work towards to recognise their commitment and achievements.

Being outdoors is important in the Scout Section and half the Programme is given over to taking part in traditional Scouting skills such as camping, survival and cooking as well as a wide range of adventurous activities, which can include anything from abseiling to zorbing.

The chance to take part in international travel is also important for Scouts and many travel abroad during their time in the Section.

Day: Friday
Time: 7:15pm - 9:15pm
Ages 10.5 - 14 years
