We have three sections – Beavers, Cubs and Scouts, meeting on weekday evenings during term time at Scout Headquarters which is situated on the Playing Fields at Gilwern, behind the Bowling Green. The Beaver Colony meets on Thursday from 5.15 - 6.30 pm; the Cub Pack on Thursday from 6.45 – 8.15 pm, and the Scout Troop meet on Monday from 7.00 – 9.00 pm. All members of the Group wear a uniform, and although this differs for each Section, everyone wears the same Group scarf or necker.
Scouting continues to offer a programme for young people over the age of 14, but these sections are not affiliated to a Group. Explorer Scouts (14-18 years) are District led, and Network Scouts (18-25 years) are Area led.
Scouting is a voluntary organisation and the Group subsist on fund raising events and annual subscriptions from members which go towards the general running expenses of the Group, insurance, and annual capitation fee to national Scout Headquarters.
