Both colonies are full with 24 beavers and run the same weekly programme which is shown on the beaver programme page. There is a waiting list for new members. Any parents wishing to enrol their son or daughter should email the beaver leaders.

The Scout Troop

This is the section for 10½ - 14 year olds who meet on a Friday night from 7 -9.30pm. The Scouts benefit from a long established leader team with Andrew Sutherland at the helm. He is well supported by Michael, Gill, Mike, Jon and Pippa. Dave has been helping with Sean Piggott as an assistant leader.
Scout meetings aim to help members develop self confidence, self reliance, teamwork and leadership through a programme of practical and exciting activities, with a heavy focus on the outdoors. We have a large troop with over 40 scouts regularly attending. The leaders provide a quality programme consisting of term time meetings either here at the hut or more often than not outdoors at Formosa or local surroundings. There are some weekend activities and 3 key camps. Scouts take full advantage of the many great local facilities such as Formosa, Longridge and Taplow Lake. We have also used Odney Common for rafting.
This year, our 2016 Mountain camp run jointly with the Explorers took us to Pen Y Pass youth hostel in the Lake District. Our more recent summer camp was to Harlech in North Wales. The scouts got to enjoy quarry based activities such a climbing, abseiling and giant zip wire. Gorge walking, hiking, cooking competition and for the older scouts a 36 hour hike.
Some of you may remember seeing on the front page of the Maidenhead Advertiser, a story about one of our Scouts Charlie Ferriman. Using his first aid skills taught at Cubs and Scouts, Charlie played a vital role in helping save the life of his baby brother, who had choked on some food. In recognition of this Charlie was awarded a Chief Scout Personal award from Bear Gryls, which was presented by County Commissioner Nigel Bevan. Well done Charlie. Anyone interested in finding out more should contact the scout leaders.


The Explorer section is for young people aged 14 – 18 years and is District controlled. They hold their meetings at the same time as scouts on a Friday. The Leader team consists of Chris, Paul, Dave and Ian. Anyone interested in finding out more should contact the explorer leaders
The Explorers also camped at Gower this year and despite the rain they enjoyed mountain biking, kite buggying, sea kayaking and a 36 hour hike.
Next August, Explorer’s in the District aged 16-18 have the opportunity to take part in a trip to Iceland.
