What are Scouts?
Scouts is the third section in Scouting, and is for boys and girls aged 10½ to 14. Scouts take part in a wide range of activities as part of their programme, from archery to expeditions. There are many awards that Scouts can work towards, completing Challenges to get the Chief Scout’s Gold Award. However, taking part and having fun is just as important as what you achieve as a Scout.
The balanced programme of activities encourages Scouts to find out about the world in which they live, know their own abilities and the importance of keeping fit and develop their creative talents. There are also opportunities to explore their beliefs and attitudes.
Being outdoors is really important and Scouts love to learn new skills, such as camping, survival and cooking as well as the wide range of adventurous activities, anything from abseiling to yachting.
Scouting is about being with friends, as part of a team, participating fully in the adventure and opportunities of life.
Scouts meet on Wednesday evenings from 19:15 to 21:00 *
Our base is Wellesbourne Church of England Primary School *
Name: Jim Eltringham
Bio: Jim grew up as the son of a Group Scout Leader, so the family legacy was sure to continue when his own boys were enrolled. Starting in Wellesbourne initially as a Beaver Leader, these days he heads up the Scout section together with J-P.
Jim loves getting outdoors as often as possible being a keen hill-walker. He especially loves taking the young people over to Sherbourne and inventing ways to make every evening fun-packed while learning the practical skills.
Favourite Cake: - Did someone say Cake?
Name: John-Paul Bailey
Bio: JP got into Scouting with Jim originally in Beavers and now has traded going home covered in PVA glue and glitter, for Sherbourne nights returning muddy and smelling of smoke. He wasn’t a Scout growing up and wanted to give his own children the opportunity while enjoying what he missed as a child.

Name: Matthew Paige-Stimson
Bio: Joined the Exec team in 2018 to support the Group in management of our finances and fundraising activities. Matthew was raised on a Lincolnshire farm so grew up outdoors filling his free-time with fishing, rafting, tree climbing, ditch jumping and den making. He is a former Cub and Scout and has a passion for hill-walking and wild-camping. His latest adventures in Wales have moved onto hammock camping and he therefore joins the rank of "Tree-hugger".
