Group Waiting List

The 1st Hexham Scout Group is the only Scout Group in Hexham, so unfortunately we are always unable to cater for every child who wants to join Scouting in the town. However we are currently running under the Groups potential capacity. this is mainly due to a lack of adults prepared to come forward and become trained leaders. When at full capacity, the Group could run Two Beaver colonies, Two Cub Packs & One Scout Troop.

Currently we have One Beaver Colony,One Cub Pack & the Scout Troop

In order to allow the smooth transition of children through the three sections, we have to operate with a maximum number of children in each section. The opening of another Beaver Colony & another cub Pack would greatly help us to increase the number of children who can become group members & enjoy the wonderful opportunities that Scouting can offer.



At present we have vacancies for adult leadership across the following sections

  • Miniumum Two adults to set up a new Beaver Colony Section leader & Assistant)
  • Minimum Two adults to set up a new cub pack (section leader & Assistant)
  •  Section leader (Scout Leader) to run the Scout Troop
  • Assistant Scout leaders to assist in running the ScoutTroop
  • An adult prepared to act as a Group Fundraiser to source avenues of funding. 
  • For more information on any of these roles please contact the scout Group.
