We have a thriving Scout Group in Neston and Box and thanks to the commitment of our leaders, assistants and parents we run a lively programme of activities for our Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts. Based in the villages of Neston and Box in Wiltshire between Bath and Chippenham, we offer scouting to over 100 young people from the age of 6 to 18. We have Beavers and Cubs in both Neston and in Box, Scouts in Neston and Explorer Scouts in Box. All five sections are open to both boys and girls.
Our young people are led by enthusiastic leaders and assistant leaders and helped by a very active parent body. A hardworking Executive Committee supports the work of the group with training, budgeting, recruitment and fundraising.
We celebrated our centenary in 2010 and have a long history of adventurous activities. Our young people get the chance to hike in our beautiful countryside, camp by our rivers, explore the quarries, kayak in our rivers and visit local farms and attractions.
