The Unit is run by an elected Committee of Explorer Scouts under the guidance of the Explorer Scout Leader (ESL). This section, as you may expect, has a fairly informal approach and ad-hoc groups are created as the need arises.


Activities can include almost anything that you can think of, and quite a lot of other activities as well! There are strict rules for adventurous activities regarding the qualifications required by those in charge of the activity. We as a group are very fortunate to have a number of well qualified leaders in climbing, hill walking, canoeing and sailing.


The Unit meets from 7.30-9.30 p.m. on Fridays in their own building called The Forge behind the St. Johns community centre.





Moving up

As new Scouts come into the Unit the older ones have to leave when they get to 18 . From then various options are open; Network Scouting, District Service Team, Leaders, and getting involved in other activities that they have picked up whilst in the movement.
