Joining Us

1st Great Notley Scout group is currently one of the largest groups within the Braintree District, and as such, we - on occasions - have to operate a waiting list for admission into sections within the group.

Our Scouts

Our Scouts

The Scout Section is for young people, usually aged between 10½ and 14 years. A young person can come into the Troop at 10 and may stay until they are 14½  years old. The Scout Troop is the third section in the Scout Group, above Beavers and Cubs.

Our Cub Scouts

Our Cub Scouts

Cub Scouts are young people aged between 8 and 10 1/2, who make up the second section of the Scouting family, between Beavers and Scouts.

Our Beaver Scouts

Our Beaver Scouts

Beaver Scouts are young people usually aged between 6 and 8 years old though they can be as young as five and three quarters. They belong to the first and youngest Section in the Scouting family.

You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or drop it in to any leader during a section meeting, as listed above.

Obviously, as we are - on occasions - over subscribed, we cannot guarantee a place, but we will hold children’s names on a waiting list.

Please note: when considering new entrants into the group, priority will be given in the following order

1)     Child where parent/carer will become fully uniformed leader and attend weekly

2)     Child where parent/carer will become a non uniformed assistant and attend weekly

3)     Child where parent/carer will be an active member of the parent helper list (3 meetings per term)

Yours in Scouting
