Swynnerton Scouts lowers age of entry


1st Swynnerton (BBS) Scout Group is now open to everyone (boys and girls) over the age of 10. The group returns after the summer break on 15th September.

The meeting night has changed to Thursdays, 7:30 to 9:30pm, as this suits more people but is still at Swynnerton Village Hall in Early Lane, ST15 0RB.

The Group is run by experienced Scout Masters Kingsley Leigh and Simon McKnight.

Kingsley has recently completed the Brotherhood of British Scouts’ training programme.

 “The BBS philosophy is refreshingly simple: uphold the Scouts’ Promise and provide the best programme possible; keep it traditional, action centred and based on the outdoors.”

Simon has worked with Kingsley in Scouting for over fifteen years and prior to that he was an NCO in the Blues and Royals.  Simon brings a wealth of fieldcraft, navigation skills and knowledge of the countryside.  He is a keen fisherman.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award is an optional programme for everyone over 14.
